Below the fold are a few things going on around the net. If you have any other announcements that
folks at PEA Soup might be interested in, please feel free to add them in the
Philosophy and Bioethics. David Hunter, who regularly comments on posts here at PEA Soup, has
created this website, which, besides carrying a blog pertaining the philosophy
and bioethics, has the aptly-named "Motherlode of Philosophy Journal Table
of Contents, News, Blogs, and Resources," easily one of the most
comprehensive and useful collections I’ve seen in a long time. Here is a description of the blog and website
from its About page: "The aim of
this blog is to provide a portal for the discussion of bioethics and in
particular the interrelations between philosophy and bioethics."
Ethics Etc This new general ethics blog has a stellar roster. I hope it takes off…the more good ethics
discussion, the better. Here is a
description of the blog from its About page: "Ethics Etc is a forum for discussing contemporary philosophical
issues in normative ethics, metaethics, moral epistemology, moral psychology,
applied ethics, social and political philosophy, law, and other related areas.
Its method is analytical, and it encourages the posting of new ideas and
arguments that have not been fully worked out."
Sports, Ethics, and Philosophy. Issue 1 of this new journal has recently been
published. The description of the
journal’s Aims and Scope suggests that the journal will focus on philosophy of sports more generally, though the introductory Editorial Essay
by Mike McNamee suggests that the journal will focus on sports ethics in particular (with
articles related to the more general areas of philosophy of sports to be included when
they shed light on issues in sports ethics). I’m looking forward to some great reads.
