I was just reading the bit of Gibbard's Thinking How to Live where he talks extensively about the good and the desirable—specifically, about its being a conceptual truth that they are one in the same. I know that this is a common line people take, and I'm curious how many of you agree with it, because I'm not entirely convinced.
Thanks to everyone who offered feedback on my new blog ideas. After considering the comments, I have decided to forge ahead with one of the projects: The Venue Poll. This will be a blog dedicated to helping Philosophers get feedback on the best potential venues for their work. The blog is now live, though publication of abstracts will be delayed a week or two to make time for ironing out any kinks and getting a stockpile of abstracts from people. If you are interested in submitting, commenting, offering further feedback on the blog's format, or just seeing what this is all about, please head over to:
I hope others will be as excited about this project as I am.
I'm thinking of starting two new blogs. Rather than just jumping in and creating them, I thought I would turn to the folks here at PEA Soup to get some feedback. I am interested, first, in feedback on whether these blogs are good ideas. This includes both the question of whether there are independent reasons to (not) have such blogs as well as the question of whether people would actually read and/or contribute to these blogs (i.e., whether I would be wasting my time creating them). Assuming one or both of these blogs is a good idea, I'm also looking for more specific feedback concerning how they should be set up.
