I’m basically bedridden with some kind of seasonal, or at least mid-semester, illness. Hopefully it’s just a 24 hour bug. In the meantime, apologies to all those whose emails I’m not responding to, and here are a few interesting links.
- Eric Schwitzgebel and Fiery Cushman are running a Moral Sense Test to, among other things, compare philosophers’ and non-philosohers’ responses to various moral questions, and they’d like as many people to take the test as possible.
- I think it’s a very bad idea to have public safety announcements that look like parking tickets.
- Oliver Sacks is doing the 2008 Mason Welch Gross Memorial Lecture at Rutgers. It is scheduled for October 29. I assume coincidentally, he is also speaking at the Autonomy Creativity Singularity conference at UNC next month, along with such philosophical luminaries as Kwame Anthony Appiah and Jesse Prinz.
- If anyone wants to chip in more money, even just $10, to the Obama fundraiser here (and in the sidebar) it would be greatly appreciated!
