I am looking for posting advice.
Phil SE encourages quesitioners to do a lot of reading beforehand, and post the reading they have done, when asking or assistance in answering a question. Now, I have been thinking about philosophy problems for decades (as a non-professional), so most of the questions I would like to ask are well beyond basic. So, per the nominal guidance, this background is great!
However, my resulting questions are very specific, with a lot of presuppositions, and generally have an answer I want to evaluate, and I suspect some may be unanswerable. An example would be the James/Popper critique of epiphenomenalism and identity theories -- that the evolutionary tuning of consciousness refutes them. I think this is a valid refutation, and while I have seen some epiphenomenalist efforts to reply, I found them weak. So -- I am interested in whether there are stronger answers, or if this is a valid refutation. But is this form of question appropriate for Phil SE?
I have wandered around the interwebs for a while, and have yet to find a better site to bounce these sorts of questions off. If Phil SE can handle them, then I will post them here. If there is a better site I should consider, I would welcome suggestions.
So -- my question is -- are the sorts of questions I want to ask appropriate here? Or if not, could they be MADE appropriate in some way? Or should they go to a different site?
