Philosopher’s Annual Suggestions


The nominating editors of Philosopher’s Annual, which takes as its goal “to select the ten best articles published in philosophy each year—an attempt as simple to state as it is admittedly impossible to fulfill”, are busy making their selections for 2014. This is hard work! How many philosophy articles are published in journals and edited collections in a given year? A thousand? How do the editors ever find the time to read all of them in order to make an informed decision?     \_(ツ)_/

Readers, let’s help these people out. Have you read an especially good piece of philosophy in a journal or edited collection that you think merits consideration for inclusion in Philosopher’s Annual? If so, please share it in the comments. Provide a link, if you can. Bonus points for suggestions that aren’t published in the usual suspects.

It’s probably cheating to pick more than one, but each of the following deserves mention:

Mahrad Almotahari, “The identity of a material thing and its matter”, Philosophical Quarterly 64:356, pp. 387-406.
http://pq.oxfordjournals.org/content/64/256/387.short?rss=1&ssource=mfr
-Phil quarterly’s 2013 essay prize winner.

Owen Griffiths, “Harmonious Rules for Identity”, Review of Symbolic Logic 7:3, pp. 499-510.
http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayAbstract?fromPage=online&aid=9322494&fileId=S1755020314000161
-provides one of the most significant results in proof theoretic harmony to date.

Barbara Vetter, “Dispositions without Conditionals”, Mind 123:489, pp. 129-156.
http://mind.oxfordjournals.org/content/123/489/129.short
-Though dispositions are a topic of growing interest, Vetter’s approach to the issue is unique, being both more informed by linguistics and refreshingly commonsensical. This paper should transform the way the issue is discussed.Report

Well, this one is technically 9 days too late to count for the 2014 edition, but something worth thinking about for the 2015 version. Sandy Goldberg’s paper “Should Have Known” (published online 9 January in Synthese) is really excellent. This paper helps to make sense of (and also to trace out the epistemic significance of) a phenomenon that is mentioned often in everyday talk but which is rarely clarified: “should have known”. http://link.springer.com.ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/article/10.1007%2Fs11229-015-0662-zReport

Quayshawn Spencer’s “A Radical Solution to the Race Problem” in Philosophy of Science 81(5) is one worth considering. It’s at http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/677694.Report
