It’s a wonderful new year for new blogs. I’ve already sun the praises for Dreaming 5th Generation War, Small Wars Journal Blog, Soob de Jour, and Quiet Thoughts. Now I am thrilled to introduce polisci.
polsci is written by a colleageu of mine at the Unviersity of Nebraska, who shares my interest on how genes influence human behavior. Thus our subject matter is often similar, with the different this his writing is far more scholarly, precise, and knowledgeable than mine.
Two of his best:
- “Evolutionary Psychology” is a reaction to the same material as my rant again “The Cultural Determinists and their Lies” (back from August)
- “U.S.’s Fastest-Growing Religious Group is Apolitical” is a nifty companion to my post, “Identity, Reason and Other Lies.” I’m skeptical of the possibility and/or utility of rational discourse, and this argue treds the same ground.
Welcome to the blogosphere, John!
