Hello!

Hello everyone! I'm glad to have found this forum. I studied philosophy at university about 25 years ago but hadn't read much at all for quite a while until very recently, so I'm now trying to get my brain used to it again - not easy after such a long gap!

I'm currently trying to make my way through David Papineau's "Philosophical Devices", which covers a lot of stuff I knew little or nothing about. It's interesting, if sometimes a bit of a slog.

Kudos to you for taking on such a slog without the benefit of a high mark at the end of the exercise. Looking forward to your academically informed thoughts on the threads.
