Apropos Shawn's discussion of philosophers being n-trick ponies, I think I've figured out the two general tricks that I currently have:

  1. Prod metaphysicians about their epistemology
  2. Prod ethicists about their philosophy of mind.

Hopefully I'll get a few more in the near future. I also find that the more I read ethicists talking philosophy of mind, the less I feel like I understand it myself, since so much of their discussion glosses over major issues.
