Hello all --
I'm an undergraduate philosophy student at Bard College, and memetics is
one of my primary interests. (More generally, I'm working on cognitive
philosophy and philosophy of the mind.) I'm currently writing a paper on
the philosophical validity and usefulness of memetics -- that is, I'm
trying to present a conceptual rather than empirical argument for the idea.
I'll be submitting it to undergraduate journals within the next few months.
I don't know anyone who's studied the field, and since this is the only
forum for the topic that I know of (I generally avoid usenet for serious
discussion after some bad experiences on philosophy newsgroups), I thought
I'd ask if there's anyone who wouldn't mind reading over my paper and
giving me their thoughts. I'm poor at evaluating my own work, and I since I
also have enough hubris to consider submitting it to JoM-EMIT, I'd like the
opinion of a few readers who don't know me well enough to pull their
punches and who I'm not specifically trying to impress.
If it helps convince you, think of it as giving a burgeoning memeticist a
hand up. Anyone interested?
Thanks for your time,
