Summer 2022 Plans: a Note to Readers

Dear Readers,

[J. Weinberg]

I’ve been running Daily Nous for over 8 years with very few pauses. Maintaining the site consumes a fair amount of my time, energy, and attention. In part that’s a function of its success, and I feel quite fortunate to be able provide something that so many of my colleagues in philosophy find useful. But I also feel that I need a break from it—for various reasons, including that I have other things I’d like to work on.

So, starting today and continuing through mid-August, Daily Nous will be a bit different. During this period, instead of the regular supply of news, updates, ideas, and links offered up each weekday, there will be:

(Please note that comments requiring moderator approval may, during this period, take longer than usual to appear, as I will not be on the site as much.)

I’m very grateful to the philosophers who have agreed to write guest posts this summer. They are helping me take this quasi-hiatus from DN, and I am sure they will provide you all with plenty to think and talk about.

In mid-August, Daily Nous will resume daily postings about news and issues in academic philosophy, along with its regular features, like the comics, weekly updates, and mini-heaps.

I hope you all have a wonderful summer. Do me a favor and don’t do anything newsworthy until I’m back, ok?

Bye for now.

Have a good holiday, sir! I lucked into Daily Nous a year or two ago, and it’s been a terrific resource. I’m not a professional philosopher but a fellow traveler. Cheers, sj

Enjoy your well-deserved break. I have a feeling that the reduced frequency of Daily Nous articles would cause some other philosophers to focus more on their research as well:)
