Stories that used to be here?

Question

Posted

I used to post on this site back in 2006, and when I did there was a person who posted thought-provoking stories based around science and philosophy. I've searched this forum for a while but I can't remember who they were by, what they were called or if they're even still here. Does anyone know?

You're probably thinking of davidm's work in the Creative Writing forum. You could also try his story The Omniscient Book.

Welcome back. :)

Thank you for responding! I'm not sure if it was a work by davidm, though it very well could be.

Given the volume of work in that forum, I'll be a little bit more specific: it involved three or four characters, if I remember around collegiate age. One of the four, a girl, was constantly one-upping another guy's intellectual blunders. It was like a play--very dialogue-driven. There was minimal presence of a narrator... either a little or none. The interaction of the characters was very Socratic in nature, which served to present a lot of the ideas to the reader.

Do you mean like at the end of the essay found here? If so, then those are the Introducing Philosophy Series found under Resources->Essays->Introducing Philosophy series.

As Michael says, those are the dialogues at the end of most parts of the Introducing Philosophy series.
