Areas of Interest

Over the past few years, as I’ve read books and written articles, I’ve periodically taken the time to reflect on where I’ve dedicated my attention. The goal is to find a feedback loop that tells me what I’m actually interested in versus what I think I’m interested in. New tools for knowledge management have made this easier to do. I wrote about this in Getting to Philosophy with Roam Research:

I expect these concerns will change over time. The current list is presented below, in no particular order.
