Welcome to Slate Star Codex, a blog about science, medicine, philosophy, politics, and futurism.
(there’s also one post about hallucinatory cactus-people, but it’s not representative)
SSC is the project of Scott Alexander, a psychiatrist on the US West Coast. You can email him at scott[at]shireroth[dot]org. Note that emailing bloggers who say they are psychiatrists is a bad way to deal with your psychiatric emergencies, and you might wish to consider talking to your doctor or going to a hospital instead.
