I have formed the kernel of a post about the election several times, but not typed anything. It’s complicated.
What’s less complicated is publication news. 😀
- Marius Pascale recently published Macabre Fascination and Moral Propriety in Contemporary Aesthetics.
I was on Marius’ thesis committee, although I got involved after he already had a good sense of the project. He began with an interest in horror fiction, planted a beachhead on the small philosophical literature about it, and used that to foray into ethics and moral psychology. More briefly and less metaphorically: His work is nifty and original.
- Jon Mandle and I have found a home for our paper, What kind of is ought gap is there and what kind ought there be? It’s forthcoming in Journal of Moral Philosophy. This involved more iterations of revise&resubmit than any paper I’d written previously.
