Here’s a set of 56 lecture snippets (five to fifteen minutes each), by a tag team from University of Washington. References Frankfurt as well as people who disagree with him. Quite worthwhile IMO based on the first few.
and don’t forget it! Yeah, I’m cynical. STCW; Bridge watch alarms; BST; USCG medical certificates; group-think; endless inspections; radar recert using rapid radar plotting in the age of ARPA/ECDIS; ship security officer; no self-protection weapons on ships in pirate waters;
waste-management inspections in every port; port state inspections after COI inspection in previous port; STCW leadership skills. Glad I’m retired.
Don’t get me wrong, having knowledgable and competent mariners is good. Having "inclusion & diversity?? Not so much. I use to ask this question aboard ship: "What is the benefit, in and of itself, of diversity & inclusion? How does that enhance maritime skills? I never got a satisfactory answer.
Leave the social experiments on the dock. Just have competent mariners-who know how to swing a wrench, or tie a knot!! (and all the other obvious skill-sets needed)
According to the video what you’re doing here is “calling bullshit” which is a much broader range than bullshit as defined here. One category of “calling bullshit” is things someone doesn’t agree with.
Bullshit involves language, statistical figures, data graphics, and other forms of presentation intended to persuade by impressing and overwhelming a reader or listener, with a blatant disregard for truth and logical coherence.
Calling bullshit is a performative utterance, a speech act in which one publicly repudiates something objectionable. The scope of targets is broader than bullshit alone. You can call bullshit on bullshit, but you can also call bullshit on lies, treachery, trickery, or injustice.
