The Philosophers’ Carnival is an online gathering of philosophical essays from blogs around the world. It happens every three weeks, moving from hosting blog to hosting blog. (Read more here.) Usuphilosophy.com will be the host for the April 25th Carnival. Anyone can submit – one needn’t be a “professional” philosopher, or a professional anything – though of course there’s no guarantee that everything will be included. So, please, submit entries that have intrigued you, whether you wrote them or not! We will be reviewing submissions from now until the 23rd or so.
The Carnival will accept essays on all worthy topics, but let’s set a topic of special interest: whether neuroscience really explains mentality. Of course, there are lots of claims that it does, ranging from the silly to the revealing. But how much of this is mere hype, and how much is paradigm shift?
