    Hi Luis: It is in production but I can’t give you a firm date. Thanks very much for your interest. I’ll post about it as soon as it’s live.

    Thanks a lot. Your course has been very useful for me. I teach philosophy of science at the university here in Brazil and it helped a lot.

    Great. Thanks for letting me know. Which university in Brazil? I’ll be making a trip to Sao Paulo, in April I think.

    State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ). Actually I am a biologist but my PhD is in Education, so I teach a few disciplines regarding Philosophy and History of Science. If you could stop by in Rio it would be nice.
