The Specialty Rankings

Selections from the 2014 Philosophical Gourmet Report (PGR), a controversial ranking of the reputations of PhD-granting philosophy departments, have been appearing at Leiter Reports recently. Parts of the following specialty rankings, along with the names of those philosophers who did them, have been released: philosophy of physics, Kant, metaethics, 19th Century Continental, ancient philosophy, philosophy of mind, ethics, philosophy of action, and political philosophy.

While I have seen some discussion of the specialty rankings in relatively private contexts on social media, regarding both methodology and results, and while Mitchell Aboulafia has been analyzing them at [email protected], I thought it might be useful to open up a place here at Daily Nous for people to discuss the rankings.
