A professor writes in with a question:
I’d be very curious what books or other resources your readers might recommend for graduate students looking to improve their writing skills. I have in mind anything from general style guides, to guides aimed more specifically at academics (or even professional philosophers!).
One thing that helps writers improve is reading a lot of good writing, so in addition to suggestions of works focused on writing itself, I’d welcome examples of philosophical work that can serve as a models for graduate students. Such works may not be the most elegant or stylishly written pieces of philosophy, but those that clearly demonstrate the basic elements of good philosophical writing.
