The 3 Rs: Reading, writing and reasoning

The last few weeks have been pretty busy for me. Yesterday I played in a ‘re-enactment’ of the very funny Monty Python ‘Philosopher’s football match’ sketch. The primary purpose of this was to promote the value of teaching philosophy to school children and was organised by the non-profit organisation ‘The Philosophy Shop‘. Read Nigel Warburton’s ‘Referee’s review‘ here.

The other exciting news is the publication of my new book: ‘Critical Thinking for Sports Students’ which, in the same vein, is a resource for teaching and developing reasoning skills. It can be ordered from Amazon here and has already been discounted to £11.85. Bargain!

Finally, on my regular check that nothing suspect comes up on a Google search of my name, I found a blog commenting on my Radio4 appearance with Simon Barnes discussing Theirry Henry’s handball incident in the World Cup qualifiers. Thanks to the author of Moonballs, Prithvi Chandrasekhar, for his kind words about me.
