Philosopher’s Carnival March 2014

Welcome to the 161st edition of the Philosopher’s Carnival! Here are this month’s submissions…

I addition to these submissions, I’d like to highlight two other posts from around the philosophy blogosphere: First, Regulatory Bias and Unseen Harms by carnival founder and past organizer Richard Chappell, which looks at the possibility of a deontological case for tighter regulation than standard consequentialist analyses would suggest. Second, Eric Schwitzgebel explains why we should be pessimistic about general theories of consciousness—a topic I consider to be extremely interesting and important.

The next edition will be at Aesthetics For Birds.
