This web site had its beginnings in philosophy and logic.
My interest in both these domains is pragmatic rather than academic.
Ultimately their applications for me lie in that enterprise which has given the site its name Factasia, which is the idea that our future should be shaped by a rational consideration of the alternatives open to us in the light of fundamental human values on which our best source of knowledge lies in heart rather than head.
Philosophy of different kinds has a contribution to make both to the elaboration of values and ends, and to the logic which may help us to realise them.
While the main part of Factasia is philosophical in character, this page concerns that special kind of philosophy which may be termed analytic.
I expect my future work in this area to be focussed on those aspects which will contribute most to the more general purposes of Factasia, and in particular to the articulation and implementation of a better future.
An important part of this is simply the story about what it is to be rational, and how machines and people could be both more intelligent and more rational.
Under this heading can be encompassed all that analytic philosophy in Factasia has to say about the various branches of philosophy considered below.
