An Informal Seminar on Politics

By Peter N. Glaskowsky

(Political Scientist Without Portfolio)

Why politics?

Broadly speaking, there are three kinds of philosophy:

1) The kind that involves nobody: logic and metaphysics
2) the kind that involves one person: epistemology, aesthetics, and ethics
3) the kind that involves more than one person: politics.

I'm going to dismiss those first two kinds of philosophy in Topics 1 and 2 below. They're critically important but not really complex enough to be worth much attention.

I've also got a few modest proposals on specific ways we can improve the operation of our political system.

What's next, religion?

Hey, you never know... I've heard religion is important to some people. Seems pretty straightforward to me. Maybe someday I'll spend a few minutes and explain it to you.
