The Philosophical Disquisitions Journal Club

One of my favorite blogs, Philosophical Disquisitions, just announced the Philosophical Disquisitions Journal Club.

Essentially, it will work like any normal academic journal club wherein academic papers are read and critically analysed and discussed by a group of interested people. So every month a paper will be nominated (by me or someone else), those who are interested can read the paper, and then join in a discussion about it here on the blog. You can even join in if you haven’t read the paper. Maybe the discussion will encourage you to do so later.

And the first paper they plan to study looks mighty interesting.

“The paper argues that evils perpetrated in the name of God (‘religious evils’) generate a special version of the problem of evil…that cannot be solved by any of the current defences and theodicies.”
