Ergo, an Open Access Journal of Philosophy published its first issue today.
The first issue includes four papers plus an editorial with the data about submissions and turnaround times. Managing Editors Jonathan Weisberg & Franz Huber (Toronto) have really done an outstanding job. It’s a shame that more philosophers of art didn’t submit something.
Also, as part of a multi-pronged coordinated philosophical strike, four blog posts have now appeared, one on each of the four papers in the first issue. Below are the links:
Julia Jorati (OSU) on a paper in early modern by Paul Lodge (Oxford):
Anna Mahtani (LSE) on a paper by Michael Caie (Pittsburgh):
Ellen Clark (Oxford) on a paper in philosophy of biology by Christopher Hitchcock (Caltech) and Joel Velasco (Texas Tech):
Thomas Nadelhoffer (Charleston) on a paper in experimental philosophy by John Turri (Waterloo):
Come on, Aestheticians! Ergo is not only swimming in prestige but more importantly cares enough to appoint two area editors for Philosophy of Art & Aesthetics (myself and Catharine Abell). How about you return that love with some kick-ass submissions.
