Some Positive News

As I mentioned recently, last year, I was critical of the Philosopher’s Annual because of its lack of papers in political philosophy. This year there were two papers in the Annual in political philosophy. Last year (see here and here), I was also critical of Ethics and PPA for lacking experimental papers. This year, as reported at the Experimental Philosophy blog, EthicsVol. 124, No. 4 is a Symposium on Experiment and Intuition in Ethics.  It is unclear whether the changes in the Annual and Ethics are in response to my critical comments or not.  Either way, it is so great to see progress being made on these issue. We should commend both the Annual and Ethics for taking steps to be more inclusive. I hope this trend will continue.
