Too Bad The World Didn't End

"The Stone" is back, and today's announcement gives every reason to expect it to be as incompetently managed and useless as ever.

Would someone please send out a Call for Proposals for a "pop culture and philosophy" volume on The Stone and Philosophy?

I've enjoyed most (but not all) of the Stone pieces in the past. I'm looking forward to the forthcoming Spiros column on "Rawls, 80s Punk, and Public Philosophy."

P.S. Three posts in one day? The world is ending!

The world won't end. I know because the Pernice Brothers told me.

There should be a "pop culture and philosohpy" book on Pop Culture and Philosophy.

Or maybe there shouldn't.

The first Stone article isn't bad at all. In fact, it's pretty good. But the reader comments are awful. It shows that profitable public philosophy at even the most basic level is near impossible.

OMG: look at the one on natural rights.

I'm no Rawlsian, but this is a hatchet job. Same for the absurd treatment of Hart and the other utilitarian positivists.

Just awful.
