That's weird. @BBCr4today thinks that Mark Serwotka comments are headline news, but that fact that Tory MEPs voted for an actual anti-Semite isn't. #r4today https://t.co/PONp6AbME3

Sóc partidària de l’indult, però han d’acceptar la seva culpabilitat, dir que no ho tornaran a fer, apartar-se de la política, arrossegar-se de genolls per les places de Catalunya, demanar perdó a España en el programa d’anarosa... La proposta Sánchez-PSOEhttps://t.co/CvuZ4gZYwS

هذا فيلم وثائقي يحكي تجربة تدريس الفلسفة للأطفال في أحد مدارس ولاية مساتشستس. وهي تعتبر جزء من حركة تعليمية عالمية لتدريس الفلسفة للأطفال P4C# ، وهي آخذه في الإتساع، ولها اليوم امتداد في أكثر من ستين دولة. أتمنى أن تصل يوما إلى مدارسنا.https://t.co/ttVZTDMjrZ

Teaching this today and forgot how great it is. History of philosophy could save philosophers from dogmatism, if they wanted to be saved. https://t.co/oS9x5P3bpi

まあ、なんというか、人文学の泰斗が、人文学の衰退を憂いつつ引用するのがトッドの『「ドイツ帝国」が世界を破滅させる』 (文春新書)だけであるという点において、やっぱり人文学は衰退してしまう運命にあったんだろうとは思うんですが。https://t.co/sIh3Egw3O4

Getting high with Bayne and Carter, in my favourite journal: "psychedelic-induced states of consciousness are indeed remarkable in many ways, but it is inappropriate to regard them as ‘higher’ states of consciousness"https://t.co/ULmAAPSc0c

Ja beste boombidders, dit krijg je dus als je halsoverkop kerncentrales sluit. Dan moet je onvermijdelijk weer fossiele smurrie gaan stoken. Een eeuwenoud bos kappen om gore bruinkool te delven is inderdaad waanzin. Dat is de kernuitstap ook. #klimaat https://t.co/kNZAnKXwSx

"No t’arronsis aquí que som enmig d’un camí que encara fa pujada, que el camí mai no és fàcil ni és curt i rere aquest turó en vindrà un altre. I mentrestant autodeterminem-nos republicanament i sempre en peu d pau tornem a omplir els carrers" @HiginiaRoig https://t.co/FxkWnD9e2o

This kind of thing makes me so angry.

Jordan Peterson wrote a book. Kate Manne wrote a review and gave an interview about it. He didn't like it, so he threatened to sue her, her employer, and the publisher. 1/16 https://t.co/i8fW4BRp3b

Soon AI will learn how to cause robust social hallucinations in human users, using high res speech synthesis and fotorealistic avatars as interfaces. Now imagine competing, AI-driven virtual agents beginning to cause other-minds illusions *in each other*.https://t.co/Dab9ePQZiB
