About

I’m currently a PhD candidate at Cornell University in the department of philosophy, where I specialize in logic and philosophy of science. While I will occasionally talk about philosophy on this blog, it will mostly be about politics, social science, books, etc. I used to post things about that on Facebook all the time and my friends, who no doubt were tired of my rants, kept encouraging me to start a blog, so eventually that’s what I did. The name of the blog, Nec Pluribus Impar, was the motto of Louis XIV and nobody really knows for sure what it means. Literally, it’s Latin for “not unequal to many” (which doesn’t make a lot of sense), but various interpretations have been proposed and historians still don’t agree about what Louis XIV meant by it. I only chose that name because, since I plan to post in French occasionally, I didn’t want something in English and it’s pretty much the first thing that occurred to me, so don’t read anything into it.
