I have ceteris paribus policies against accepting invitations to contribute to volumes, submitting to paper prizes and competitions, and writing book reviews. In this my publication policies largely agree with those of David Lewis. I also follow Hume's (and Quine's and Kripke's and...) policy on writing freestanding replies to critics.  I am not on social media and am not a member of the APA.

I'm trying to take the difficult path up the mountain. No short-cuts.

"Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all."
