Um, I'm sorry. Philosophy cares about peer review?

Zeno effectively solved the trolley problem by logically proving that no matter whether you divert the trolley or not, it can never reach anyone to hit and kill them.

Oh, so you believe Peterson is a philosopher. Can you provide evidence of that in the form a sanity defense?

This could be literature or word meanings but this word usage has grated on my nerves for decades for exactly the reason the thinkpiece lays out.

So just why don't you just click on the link so you can just read:

I clicked thinking that it might be disparaging The Long Now Foundation, but it appears that this is a very different idea of long term thinking. They are more interested in guarding against looming threats like climate change by considering how actions will have consequences. As well as preserving culture and civilization in the event of looming catastrophes.
