Daily Nous provides information and news for and about the philosophy profession. The site is maintained by me, Justin Weinberg, an associate professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina. If you have news you would like to share, or other items you think would be of interest to professional philosophers, please send it to dailynouseditor at gmail. If you would like to share information confidentially, please say so in your correspondence and I will not reveal you as a source. If you spot an error on the site, please contact me. Comments are welcome, though please take a look at the comments policy. You can follow the blog on Facebook and Twitter.
Daily Nous often links to other sites and material that I think will be of interest to some readers. Please note that my linking to another site does not imply that I endorse the site, its content, or its creators. Daily Nous occasionally publishes guest posts by others on topics that I think will be of interest to some readers. Guest posts express the views of the author; my publishing of a guest post does not imply that I endorse the content of the post.
If you are interested in advertising on Daily Nous, email me. Ad spots tend to be booked up months in advance; prospective advertisers with date-sensitive ads should plan accordingly.
The name of the blog comes from an ancient Greek word for “intellect” or “understanding” that is sort of pronounced like “news,” preceded by a contemporary English word meaning “every day,” with the whole thing together being something that sounds like “daily news.” Entries are time-stamped in the Eastern Time Zone.
