- My colleague Stephen Stich is collecting data on philosophers’ views about normative judgments. This is part of work he’s doing jointly with Joe Henrich and Taylor Davis at UBC. It involves answering questions in a 20-item questionnaire. The research has been approved by UBC’s Behavioral Research Ethics Board and is open to all faculty and graduate students in philosophy. If you’d like to take this survey, it is online at:
- Somewhat relatedly, this week’s David Brooks column talks about empirically influenced work in ethics, highlighting in particular Kwame Anthony Appiah’s recent book Experiments in Ethics.
- The Blackwell Compass Virtual Conference is underway, and I encourage everyone to check out the activities.
- I’m going to be at (at least) three workshops/conferences in St Andrews next summer. This includes the methodology workshop, the large Arché / Rutgers Epistemology conference and the Conference on the Foundations of Logical Consequence. I’m also scheduled to give talks in Germany and in England. It should be a busy, and very rewarding, summer.
- While all that is happening, my colleague Dean Zimmerman is co-organising a summer seminar in philosophy of religion. There’s lots of information available at that link, but the crucial thing to note now is that registration for it closes December 1.
- Finally, here are some very nice pictures of Lower Manhattan.
