After Keith DeRose’s recent post on the apparent end of The Philosopher’s Annual, Brian Weatherson suggested that some blogs, such as PEA Soup, might help take over their task (see this Certain Doubts post for more discussion). For various reasons, we’re not quite prepared to attempt to come up with the 10 best articles of the year, or even the 10 best ethics articles, but we do like the ideas of providing recommendations for good reading and recognizing quality work.
Accordingly, we thought it appropriate to solicit nominations for a new feature: PEA Soup’s Notable Ethics Articles 2005-2006. (The last PA was apparently 2003, and we will miss ’04, but because of the lag time at some journals, it seems appropriate to have it cover the two most recent years.) Again, this is not an attempt to divine the "best" ethics articles for these two years, but merely to recognize and recommend articles that PEA Soup participants find notable. Note that "PEA Soup participants" should be construed broadly. Even if you’re just a reader who’s been lurking out there, you are welcome to nominate.
So, please post, in the comments section here, your favorite articles in ethics (broadly construed) for 2005-2006. In order to keep this list relatively selective, please limit yourself to two nominations total. Also, please post your references in the following manner, in order to keep things manageable: Author, Article Title, Journal Title, Volume, Year, Pages. Comments will close January 31.
Congratulations in advance to everyone who makes the list!
