Just a quick note to say I'm still around and to apologise for not updating this blog for so long. I haven't abandoned it! But what little time I get for philosophy has been hijacked recently by trying to set out my thoughts on a Wittgensteinian approach to the "religion vrs science" debate. It's a huge, complex area (but very interesting too) and I have over a hundred pages of notes that I must somehow fashion into a coherent whole.

I won't be presenting the results of that work here; although it's closely bound up with Wittgenstein's philosophy it isn't directly connected to explaining the Philosophical Investigations. Instead, I've set up a new blog, Scribbled in the Margin. The religion/science stuff will appear there, along with posts on various other subjects. I've already published a few - take a look if you get the chance.

Like I say, I will definitely be returning to this blog at some stage. I've managed to do a little bit of work on rule-following, which is the next major topic to confront (although first there's that curious little discussion on the general form of propositions), and will write it up when I get the chance. So watch this space!
