Philosophical Opinions

Perhaps you’ve been nagged by a persistent question, one that you didn’t even know how to form, much less pursue, and for months now, but without knowing why, or even that it was there. Perhaps your question was something like this: I wonder, you might have asked yourself, what the names of the ten best/most important books on ethics are from the last 200 years?

Well you can scratch that itch, now. Here’s the list.

Bonus points for saying how many you’ve read. I’ve got three in their entirety, most of a fourth, and small pieces of a fifth and sixth. And so, I guess I’ve got some more reading to do…

We’re #10!!

Of the Top Ten Google searches by Chicagoans in 2010.

There are four school related items in the list, including three higher education institutions, but there is an interesting difference between them and us.

#2 is “UIC Blackboard,” so that’s clearly students (and faculty) looking for info about the school where they already are. #7 is “NEIUPort,” so I’m guessing that’s pretty much the same thing.

And then there’s us, just “Harold Washington College;” I’m guessing that means that the people looking for information on us are looking out of interest rather than necessity. We didn’t get much love from the writer who chose to say nothing about us, but still that’s some pretty good “brand recognition,” I’d say…wouldn’t you?
