Undone by The Literal-Minded

From a reader:

Jonah,

“Mental” philosophy is philosophy about or concerning the mind. It’s no funnier a name than “physical science.” This reminds me of a story of the philosopher Colin McGinn, who was named the Wilde Reader of Mental Philosophy at Oxford. Afterwards his mother apparently referred to him as the Mental Reader of Wild Philosophy.

Your faithful reader,
