My name is Joshua. I’m a lifelong student of philosophy, but my interests are generally interdisciplinary. Something that I cannot let go of is a sense of wonder and curiosity with regard to the cosmos and human nature. I enjoy keeping a record of ideas, whether my own or others, of which I consider important or interesting in some way. I want to build a website that I can use as my own personal hub for exploring ideas across the internet. I curate thought-provoking content regularly via Twitter and Facebook. I used to find some satisfaction in keeping a type of online journal using Facebook’s Note system (2010-12). Since then, I’ve transferred those notes here (which I’ve categorized under “2012”) and built upon them. I have shared some of my past writings and a portion of my experiences in life. Some of those writings are gathered here as a glimpse into the development of my perspective.
My Journey (2012)
A brief summary of my journey thus far with an examination of the most remarkable ideas that I have come across throughout the years.
An essay concerning the arguments from natural theology for the existence of a theistic God.
Epistemology & The Soul (2006)
An essay that investigates the possibility of knowledge and the existence of a soul that persists after bodily death.
The History of an Error (2008)
An old and slightly embarrassing, yet still entertaining essay that I wrote around 2008. It is an essay written in favor of perspectivism that examines the value of Truth.
Reason & Faith (2017)
A confession, of sorts, of my own misgivings regarding reason and faith, followed by Leo Tolstoy’s own personal confession.
An explanation of my choice of “Antilogicalism” and a farewell to a great friend.
