Doing Things With Words a new philosophy blog I noticed thanks to the recent carnival. He's got some interesting posts about philosopher-kings (er, presidents, rather) and gay marriage and such. Well worth a read.

But the main purpose of this post is to describe the remarkable coincidence he's involved in. Earlier today, I was reading Kripke's Naming and Necessity, and laughed out loud at a particularly witty section. Then, soon afterwards, I went on the computer and found DTWW posting the exact same passage:
"It really is a nice theory. The only defect I think it has is probably common to all philosophical theories. It's wrong. You may suspect me of proposing another theory in its place, but I hope not, because I'm sure it's wrong too if it is a theory." (p.64)

It's a strange world.


  1. Yep, it's really a strange world. 4 weeks ago, I wrote a short paper on Frege, Kripke, Searle and Names. Since then, that Kripke-Quote was on my notebooks' desktop.


  2. I'm trying to find an article that dtww.blogspot wrote a time ago. And the page doesent exist. ¿Can you help me to find it?
