This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I don't know whether you do or do not understand just why I am so scornful of intellectual disintegrity and why I do not shy from pointing it out (nor from mocking it) when it is blatant. But, if you understand the content of the article, then you surely ought to understand.
A problem with the term 'fact' -- and Willard does it in this piece -- is that we use the term to mean two very different things:1) we call the thing about which we wish to think/speak a 'fact'2) we call the statement(s) we make about the thing 'fact(s)'The first might better be called "brute facts." The second "factual statements."
