Brian Leiter and When Reason Goes on Holiday

In a recent post on his blog, Brian Leiter opens a discussion about my article “Study Philosophy to Improve Thinking–A Case of False Advertising?” published two days ago in Quillette.

Although Leiter says that the discussion will be moderated and that “only comments related to the issues raised by the essay are invited”, he did not stick to his own rule in his opening contribution in which he calls me “a right-wing crank” and “an anti-Marxist zealot”, and accuses me of “a fraudulent misrepresentation” of one of his posts. Since he doesn’t even mention the title of my book in which this transgression allegedly happened, his readers probably had no idea what he was talking about. Well, here you can read the offending two and half pages and form your own opinion.
