Links of the day…

  1. 93% of philosophy expected to be LLM-authored summaries of corpus analyses of x-phi survey results by 2027 — findings from a new statistical study forthcoming in Mined.
  2. DeSantis bans teaching of John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty in Florida classrooms — his idea of “experiments in living”, according to parents who had complained about the book, “sounds gay”.
  3. Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Noûs, and Ethics among philosophy journals leaving their publishers and moving to Substack — the bad news is they will still be behind a paywall, the good news is that the paywall is only $5/month
  4. “Other philosophers have simply failed to appreciate just how much can be derived from ‘A=A'” — Richard Marshall “interviews” Ayn Rand at 3:16AM.
  5. New “Philosophy for Kids” program focuses on teaching elementary students the skills they’ll need — in order to eventually pursue careers in computer programming, business, government, consulting, etc.
  6. “It turns out there is value in a history of philosophical work on the value of the history of philosophy” — from a recent article in Metametaphilosophy.
  7. “I am a philosopher who has taken an interest, of late, in Candy Crush, and I find that my experiments have significantly widened the range of accounts of the nature of reality that I am disposed to take seriously” — Justin E.H. Smith continues to push against the boundaries of philosophy.
