Online Philosophy Resources Weekly Update

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

Below are recent updates to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP), Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP), 1000-Word PhilosophyWireless Philosophy (Wi-Phi), as well as new book reviews at Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (NDPR).

As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve started including links in these posts to reviews of philosophy books in the popular press. I have no doubt that we’re missing some of them, so please do help us out. If you see a review, please email me the link. Thanks!
