Blogroll Amnesty Weekend

Yes, it's officially the Blogroll Amnesty Weekend, leading up to Blogroll Amnesty Day, February 3rd, in remembrance of the great blogroll bloodbath.

You're supposed to link to "lesser" blogs, but as The Barefoot Bum is... er... not the most trafficked or linked-to blog in the blogosphere, I'll just have to link to blogs I like.

Today, since I have limited time, I'll link to some good philosophy blogs, most by published authors, professors or students. Amazingly enough, they're mostly atheists and all liberal/progressive/lefty types. Progressive politics needs philosophy and theoretics as much as it needs strategy and tactics.

Stephen Law, the Editor of The Royal Institute of Philosophy Magazine, Think.

Philosophers' Playground, by Steve Gimbel, professor at Gettysburg College and editor of The Grateful Dead and Philosophy.

Virtual Philosopher, home of Nigel Warburton, author of about a dozen books on philosophy.

Butterflies and Wheels, run by Ophelia Benson and Jeremy Stangroom.

Various students: The Web of Belief (Daniel Dennett sometimes posts there), The Uncredible Hallq, goldbricker, Geoff Arnold and Thalesian Fools.

Check out the links on these blogs for a plethora of good (and perhaps some not-so-good) philosophy blogs and resources.

(Again, I'm in a rush and forgetful of details; if I've forgotten you, let me know and twenty lashes with a wet noodle to me with a correction.)

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
