What is this site?
This site is the homepage for the Philosophers' Carnival project, which aims to showcase the best substantive philosophical blogposts.

NEWS (16 Feb 2017): After some months of only sporadic activity, the Philosophers' Carnival project will be transforming this month into Philosophical Blog Posts, a curated, bi-monthly set of links to substantive philosophical blog posts. The 'Carnival' branding has long seemed a bit too frivolous to me, and since the project stopped involving a different host for each edition, this was doubly inappropriate. I plan to carry on the task of collating substantive, broadly analytic philosophy done by-the-blog.

NEWS (17 Jul 2016): The Carnival project has been in a state of transition for some months now. The old-style Carnival editions have lapsed, but our facebook feed continues to gain traction (currently at 1342 followers). For now, the facebook feed is the main event, with selected links from that being featured at the top of the page you are viewing now. Once there are enough of these selected links, we will begin to archive them at dedicated pages.

NEWS (10 Nov 2015): The Carnival homepage (which you are looking at now) has been given a new design. Also, some recent milestones:

- On May 26, 2015 our Facebook feed reached 1000 followers.
- On August 15, 2014 the Philosophers' Carnival had its 10th anniversary.

NEWS (9 Oct 2012):
After eight years of running the Carnival, Richard Yetter Chappell of Philosophy et cetera has handed its organization over to Tristan Haze of Sprachlogik. The edition for the 10th of October will be posted on Sprachlogik, together with an outline of new hopes, plans and strategies for the project.

What is the purpose of the carnival?
The Philosophers' Carnival has three primary purposes:

  • To showcase the best philosophical writing in the blogosphere, in one convenient location, for the benefit of philosophically-inclined readers.
  • To provide lesser-known philosophy bloggers with the opportunity to gain some exposure and attract a wider audience.
  • To foster and promote the free online dissemination of serious philosophy.
