I'm off for about a week beginning Wednesday and thankfully won't have internet access during my travels. So there won't be any new posts until I return.
In the meantime, ponder this: In a conversation today, someone referred to "New York philosophy" in characterizing not a position but a style of argument (or so it seemed). It got me thinking... I think I know what "Cornell realism" is and there's definitely something distinctive about what comes out of Pittsburgh. Is there a distinctively "New York" philosophy? (I think we'd need to include within the scope of "New York" certain parts of Northern New Jersey.) Do Fodor, Bilgrami, Block, Boghossian, Devitt, Kitcher, and co. form a "kind"?
I suppose I could just ask the guy who used the term what he meant, but who cares what he thinks?
