Here’s the weekly report of new entries in online philosophical resources and new reviews of philosophy books.
We check out and report on updates to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP), Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP), 1000-Word Philosophy, Wireless Philosophy (Wi-Phi), and occasionally some other sites, as well as new book reviews at Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (NDPR) and in the popular press. If you notice any reviews of books by philosophers in non-academic venues, please let us know. Thanks!
