Welcome to our Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy. The goal of our course is to demonstrate that mathematical methods can be as useful in philosophy as they are in the sciences.

Sounds pretty interesting, so I'll try it out and see how far I get. Hopefully by the end of the course I too will be able to use such mathematical methods in order to acquire more philosophical insight.

Here's a useful reference to keep me going: Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Good going Jordan, a truly amazing feat at such a young age. We're all very proud of you!

Lately I am trying really hard to resist becoming too negative about my bad golfing days which is not always that easy.

Nowadays when someone asks me how it went, I answer politely that it went "een beetje moeizaam" rather than complaining that I played really lousy.

In the wonderful world of golf, it is important to keep your cool and not to let a bad day on the links get you down.

The trick is to remain as positive as possible, just like it is in real life. Try it and it will make you feel better.


This is what I saw through the windshield when I got into my car to head off to an early morning round of golf.

I was so struck by the beauty of the colors and the way the sunshine danced across the thin layer of ice that I had to take a picture of it.

One could almost say that it's a true masterpiece of art and sell the painting for millions of dollars.

However, we all know that the beauty of nature is priceless and no amount of money can ever do it justice. Just appreciate the fleeting moment while we can.
