Online Philosophy Resources Weekly Update

Here’s the weekly report of new entries in online philosophical resources and new reviews of philosophy books. 

We recently added a new section to the weekly update: “Reviews of Philosophy Books in the Popular Press”. This section contains links to recent reviews of books by academic philosophers that are published in non-academic venues, such as newspapers, magazines, literary websites, etc. Since there are many such possible venues, your assistance in noticing relevant reviews would be much appreciated: if you see something, please send in the link. Thanks!

The new section joins the rest of our weekly survey of online philosophy resources, which includes the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP), Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP), Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (NDPR), 1000-Word PhilosophyWireless Philosophy (Wi-Phi), and occasionally some other sites.

I am pleased to see here a review of a festschrift for Mark Platts who I knew well forty years ago in London before he emigrated to Mexico. Clever man, witty too. Oddly, I now live not so far from him, in Miami, but I haven’t set eyes on him in four decades. Good to be reminded of him after the yawning interim.
