As I’ve been checking out various philosophy podcasts, it struck me that I’ve neglected looking into online philosophy blogs. There’s good reason for this, of course: if I’m at a computer (or iPhone or whatever) reading philosophy, I’m probably doing research for one of our episodes. If podcasting weren’t such a new medium, and you all had ready access to a myriad of recordings of, e.g. Rousseu and Hume mixin’ it up over drinks, then no doubt we’d have a harder time getting an audience for our little recorded study group.
So, I’m requesting your help in telling us what philosophy blogs out there provide you with some entertainment value, as opposed to self-important Nietzsche-wannabes putting up cryptic treatises that could not stand up to peer review or polemically charged screeds documenting the author’s ongoing battle with the forces of ignorance.
On second thought, go ahead and link me to the terrible blogs you know about as well, so we can all feel uncomfortable together.
