Hello, there's no guarantee I will ever return to this website, but in case the topics interest me, etc. I will briefly introduce myself here. I am relatively new to philosophy. My main interest is science, biology in particular. I noticed a while back that most scientists are fairly ignorant of philosophy, as well as the humanities, and decided that if I were to become one some day I ought to avoid that trap from the start. Through my extremely brief perambulations I have developed a genuine interest, and may use this forum to develop that interest. Thank you for reading

Hello Joseph,

and why would you not return to this forum ? Because the level is too low and you do not have the feeling that it´s worth it ?
There are some excellent minds on this forum: Richard Baron, Richard Lewis (who does not post much, unfortunately), conceptualizer, Duncan Butlin (although temporarily inhibited to post), to name but just a few.
Everyone makes his own lists of preferences of course.

Please, allow us to learn from you, if you have something true and good to say.

Thanks in advance.

Ha, I would never be so arrogant. I am sure that I would have much more to learn from you than vice versa; also, I doubt that I have anything true or good to say. The only reason I made the disclaimer is because I have a bad habit of finding interesting sites but forgetting what they were. This one looks good so I think I'll stay for a while. Thanks for the welcome

It's called a 'bookmark'.

Joseph,

Welcome! I hope you decide to stick around.
I don't know much about anything but I enjoy reading the posts and everyone seems really nice and helpful. So pull up a chair and join in.
