Welcome to the 161st edition of the Philosopher’s Carnival! Here are this month’s submissions…
- Enigman has a post on the ancient philosophical problem of vagueness.
- Brock Rough has a post at Aesthetics For Birds explaining why video games in art museums still aren’t art.
- Marcus Arvan summarizes an article he wrote proposing a new theory of free will which he calls “libertarian compatibilism.
- Finally, carnival organizer Tristan Haze has a post titled Kripke’s Puzzle and Semantic Granularity
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.
