Dr. Thomas is right, if you are at an early stage of your career as a philosopher, it is generally unwise to invest time and energy into a popular work. But this should be changed. Surely we can come up with ways to evaluate the quality of popular works, and include that in the tenure and promotion process. Of course, I'm assuming that the suspicion towards such works is unwarranted. And it is.


I really liked this post. I had been inspiring myself by traveling and wrote. Unfortunately, lockdowns are stopped traveling.
