In between figuring out which students have written their own papers, and grading the ones who have, there has been less blogging than ideal. So here are a few links to keep things going.
- Kai von Fintel and David Beaver are starting up a new journal, Semantics and Pragmatics, and it has a blog. The journal will be open access and online, and it is well and truly worth supporting. I was thinking of developing a policy of submitting all non-solicited papers (if I ever write such a thing again) to Philosophers’ Imprint, out of general support for open access principles. But perhaps the right policy is a more general support for open access.
- Speaking of the Imprint, Alexander George has a very interesting paper on the relevance of a very surprising mathematical result to the traditional problem of induction.
- Philosophy Compass is sponsoring the online philosophy conference, which is now on. One of my big plans for the future is real-time online philosophy conferences. But right now that’s vaporware – this is the cutting edge as far as virtual conferences go.
- As part of the sponsopship deal, Compass is providing free access to several Compass articles. These include: Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra, “Truthmakers”, Karen Bennett, “Mental Causation”, Mandy Simons, “Foundational Issues in Presupposition”, Ron Mallon, “A Field Guide to Social Construction” and W.J. Waluchow, “Judicial Review”
- Back in meatspace, Indiana is holding a conference on agency in September.
