The blog offers short pieces of 500-700 words that can be read independently, though there are references between them. It goes through a wide range of philosophical issues: knowledge/truth, ethics/morality, language/meaning, culture, and society.
This is done from a constructivist, pragmatist perspective, inspired by the American pragmatist philosophers, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Wittgenstein, among others. I try to use philosophy as a perspective for understanding present society. The focus is on dynamics: change of knowledge (invention), meaning, society, and organization.
In October 2016 the blog received the award of belonging to the top 100 philosophy blogs.
