A strange collection of essays and other writings by Philosophy Bear, one of a small handful of grizzly bear writers in the world today [and do you know how few grizzly bears fit in a handful?]. A professional graduate student, lifelong OCD sufferer, longtime leftwing activist, and a passionate salmon connoisseur, Philosophy Bear scratched these essays into his cave walls while he should have been hibernating. This anthology covers topics from socialism to folk music, from OCD to metaphysics, and from Oscar Wilde to AI. Its tone and quality vary from cascading sorrow to dam breaching hope, from white-knuckled rage to cold and rapid analysis, belles lettres to bawdy humor, well researched and circumspect writing to wild and irresponsible speculation. It's long and cheap so we can at least promise that it's good value in a narrow and quantitative sense. Readers should be warned in a number of respects before purchasing this book: 1. It was written by a busy graduate student. It's a labor of love, but a rough one. By my fermi-estimate, it contains 35 spelling mistakes. The fact-checking isn't always up to the standard I'd like. I've tried hard, but there will be problems with the layout. 2. If the cost is too much (I'm not judging, I know what it's like to be completely broke with not even a dollar to my name) you can get a free PDF version by Googling "Philosophy Bear Substack" and looking at the pinned post. 3. It's very left-wing. If that annoys you, you have been warned.
