A Post of Links

My last post on Schmitt created a bit more of a response than I expected. Make sure to read the comments from my post, also read Peter's response here, and Stuart Elden's response here. Excellent discussion that I hope to get to shortly.

Recently there has been a flurry of articles out there about if vegetarianism is helpful or harmful to the environment. You have this discussion from Mother Jones, and this short article from Mother Jones. There is also this very mixed in quality article from New Scientist (h/t APS). I've been meaning to make a longer post on this issue, and if there is interest I will definitely do so. Make sure to read Eric Marcus on the MJ article.

A frequent commentator on this blog, Captain Furious, just got through sending me a link to this wonderful looking conference that will take place at Indiana University. Sadly, it looks like the dates will conflict with my honeymoon (well, I guess not too sadly on some level).

Levi has up the table of contents of his The Democracy of Objects. I've said it before, it looks really wonderful. I can't wait to see it in print.

Peter has a post up on Radical Philosophy Review, including a call for articles. It's a great journal, and Peter and everyone deserves a lot of credit for the work they have put into it.

EJ has a post up as a follow-up on my post about first philosophy. Worth reading.

In honor of my recent move back to GA, I am going to post a video from one of my favorite current GA musicians, Sharon Jones.
