Chalmers announced launch of Phil-Papers – an online database “database of close to 200,000 articles and books in philosophy. Around
this database, the site has all sorts of tools for accessing the
articles and books online wherever possible, for discussing them in
discussion forums [etc …]”
for submitting a paper to the Consciousness Online conference.
least I can do is link to the new Philosophers’ Carnival
This philosophy-centric Digg clone looks great! (ht Hesperus/Phosphorus)
After reading few posts on my favorite blogs lately, I though I just put a list of links to them as a sign of appreciation, respect (which turns into admiration in case of certain posts I’ve read on those blogs) and as a “thank you”.
So, in no particular order: Siris, Splintered Mind, Mixing Memory, Mormon Metaphysics, DuckRabbit, Philosophy Sucks!, Soh DAN, The Ends of Thought… I better stop it, before I name so much of them that the word “favorite” looses any significance.
Peter Davis has a several funny cartoon videos on the history of philosophy, called ‘three minute philosophy‘.
Here is one of them…
Also… Don’t forget to check out the new philosophers’ carnival over at Big Ideas.
BTW, you probably noticed there weren’t much posts here lately. I suspect I did something bad to the muses, or to some close relative of their, so don’t expect too much from me in the following period.
#69 is here. Seems short, but hopefully it is not because of lack of contributions.
I updated the page with online videos of philosophy lectures, with following:
At Young Philosophers:
- A Priori Skepticism – James Beebe
- The Fine Tuning Argument for the Existence of God – James Beebe
- Is Morality Real, or Do We Make It Up? – Joshua Thurow
Also from the comments of that page…
- Debbie pointed to this course on Death by Shelly Kagan
- And a link to a Gresham College Lectures and Events, which Tjh recommended in the comments long time ago, but I never got to pick out the philosophically interesting ones. There are many lectures there on all kind of topics.
Happy 42nd birthday to David Chalmers! Go to his blog, and follow the link to the pictures from the birthday party!
