Philosophy Carnival

The new one is here. Note that there’s an article featured by Edward Feser, who commented here recently on one of Kleiner’s posts. Feser’s article asks why (some) physicists are so bad at philosophy. I myself often wonder how a physicist (like Hawking, in his latest book) could have the confidence to stab away at philosophy without doing any real reading up on the subject first … can you imagine anyone doing the same thing with physics? And then I wonder why some editor somewhere wouldn’t say, “Hang on a moment; is there a chance this author doesn’t know what s/he’s talking about?” I guess there’s a popular philosophical skepticism which holds that, since no philosopher really has any knowledge, everyone is welcome to join in with any thought that crosses a mind.

Anyway, lots of other interesting posts at the Carnival as well. Check them out.
