Whooshup Reorganization

To reflect what this blog has become, the format has changed to emphasize the enormous number of useful links to resources we provide. To go to the whooshup blog and conversations about these resources, just scroll to the bottom of the lists of resources!

Wikipedia Dreyfus Links

I thought it would be good to provide a bunch of links on this blog. Then I thought better of it. Most of the critical links already exist on Wikipedia and I will try to add all the ones I know of that are not on that page, and keep it current as best I can. If we use the Wikipedia article as the central hub of our resource linking, it will improve that information and be available to everyone in the world, so let's do it that way until someone has a better plan!

Here is the article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubert_Dreyfus


1. Go to the External Links, and find the webcasts of his classes. Then listen to them.

2. Go to the Dreyfus home page at UC Berkeley for more general info on him. Also, there is a link to his papers - pick a short one - usually you can get the .pdf version and read it in 15 minutes. Very good stuff.

The information in the Wikipedia article is good but basic and sometimes incomplete. It focuses on the AI debate. You can track from this page to most of the immediately relavent philosophy articles, but it seems to me this is still an area where Wikipedia is finding its way, and you may stumble on lots of inconsistent articles.
