A friend at MIT shared this course listing on Google Reader, interesting
case study:

6.893 Philosophy and Theoretical Computer

I thought I’d let *Shtetl-Optimized* readers know about an experimental new
course I’m teaching this fall (starting tomorrow): 6.893 Philosophy and
Theoretical Computer
The course was directly inspired by my Why Philosophers Should Care About
Computational Complexity <http://eccc.hpi-web.de/report/2011/108/> essay,
and will cover many of the same topics.  Here’s the description:
This new offering will examine the relevance of modern theoretical computer
science to traditional questions in philosophy, and conversely, what
philosophy can contribute to theoretical computer science.
