The Best of UncannyPhilosophy


To commemorate the 5th anniversary of Uncanny Philosophy, I decided to put up 30 of my best posts (in my opinion) into this Hall of Fame Page. These posts were selected based on their content and impactful meaning to me personally rather than the number of comments it generated (my blog is anyway too quiet to begin with!)

I also posted an “interview” on my reflections on UncannyPhilosophy over the last five years to celebrate this event!
