The philosophy journal Synthese has become embroiled in a controversy regarding a special issue entitled “Evolution and its Rivals”. The chief editors of the journal have behaved in ways which have struck many philosophers as inappropriate. You can learn more about the controversy at the Leiter Report. If you’re an academic, you may wish to sign the petition demanding that the editors respond to the controversy appropriately.Guest Contributor Eric Steinhart is a professor of philosophy at William Paterson University.
