Honour not the malice of thine enemy so much, as to say, thy misery comes from him; dishonour not the complexion of the times so much, as to say, thy misery comes from them  (J Donne)

My 3:AM interview with Richard Marshall is published.

My new paper Normativity: The Place of reasoning has been substantially revised (10/3/15). It is available from the unpublished papers page, as are 3 other recent papers, Value and the Weight of Reasons, A Hedgehog's Unity of Value and Why The State.  Some of the ideas explored in Why the state were expressed in a talk given in Jan 14 in the Singapore Symposium on Legal Theory which is on line. Accompanying as it does a much longer paper it should be listened to with either the full paper or the Power Point slides in hand the link is here 

The Kellogg Lecture in jurisprudence delivered on 5/10/11 is now available HERE
