In Sunday's Philosophy in Action Webcast, I discussed evasion versus rationalization versus context-dropping. I'm post it here because, in the process of answering that question, I talked about the evasions, rationalizations, and context-dropping in the "personhood" movement.
The question was:
How are evasion, rationalization, and context-dropping similar and different? When thinking over a problem I notice that these terms can often be applied simultaneously. So what do they mean – and how are they similar and different?My answer, in brief:
