7. Trust on the internet When my twin babies were napping, I would browse online forums for parents – usually mothers – of multiples. Sometimes I’d pick up practical tips, but mostly I just gained consolation from the fact that others were also struggling with exhaustion, or had emerged from the early stages to enjoy life with their toddler twins. It was salutary to see people managing under much harder circumstances than mine – as single parents, with older children to care for too, with financial troubles, with medical issues. And I was in awe of parents of triplets and

4. The analysis of knowledge Gettier’s challenge ). If you are tempted to say Smith now knows that it is 1:17, wait a moment. Here’s one additional fact about the situation: the clock is broken, and its hands haven’t moved for the last two days. It’s just a coincidence that Smith is looking at this broken clock at one of the rare moments when it isn’t wrong. By looking at the broken clock, does Smith come to know that it is 1:17? Many people feel inclined to say No, he doesn’t know this . (If you’re not

5. Honesty and dishonesty Trusting what someone says has two aspects: an expectation of honesty, and an expectation of knowledge. If I trust my son when he says that his school is closed today, then I trust that he is honestly expressing his belief, and I also trust that he knows what he’s talking about. Either alone isn’t enough. If I think he’s lying, then I won’t trust what he says. And if I think he’s persuaded himself through wishful thinking instead of seeking evidence, then I won’t trust what he says either (though I will forgive wishful thinking more

1. Introducing criminology In one of his few observations about crime, and in this case slightly tongue in cheek, Karl Marx said, ‘A philosopher produces ideas, a poet poems, a clergyman sermons, a professor compendia and so on. A criminal produces crimes.’ His point was that while we may be used to thinking of crime in moral terms, as something to be avoided or prevented, it can also be seen as a branch of production. ‘Would locks ever have reached their present degree of excellence had there been no thieves?’, he asked. That we see some acts as crimes, and
