Daily Nous provides news for and about the philosophy profession, useful information for academic philosophers, links to items of interest elsewhere, and an online space for philosophers to publicly discuss it all. The site is maintained by me, Justin Weinberg, an associate professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina.
With over 7.5 million views per year, Daily Nous is one of the leading sites of its kind. It has been reported about or cited in The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, The New York Review of Books, The Financial Times, New York Magazine, Vox, and various other media outlets, and has had its content recommended by The Browser, Open Culture, Bookforum, and other well-known web curators. You can follow the site on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. You can also support the site via Patreon.
Daily Nous began on Friday, March 7, 2014. The name of the blog includes an ancient Greek word, nous, meaning “intellect” or “understanding,” that is sort of pronounced like “news,” and so “Daily Nous” sounds a bit like “daily news.”
