I'm taking a break today! I've been working hard, need to rest and recharge ... so, in lieu of a philosophy post, here's the silliest picture I can find.
This photo was taken at a high school dance in Florida in 1965. A friend of a friend who I don't know posted it on Facebook. The photo itself is a work of art, but there's something else amazing about this picture: that band is the very young Allman Brothers (known, at the time, as Allman Joy). The unassuming guitar player on the left is the genius Duane "Sweetness" Allman, and I'm pretty sure that's Gregg Allman on the right.
Well, I may as well also share a few good philosophy links I've been saving up, while you're here:
- Full-Stop Magazine interviews Simon Critchley
- Mindmelding: Two Brains, One Consciousness?
- Jessica Tripler offers a woman's perspective on Soren Kierkegaard's famous observations about Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac
- Jonathan Haidt ponders the Human Hive (via)
- The Maverick Philosopher on Arguments and Proofs
And ... that's all I've got for you today. Now I'm putting my shorts on and going dancing.
