Cognitive Dissidents

Hat tip to Crooked Timber: Cognitive Dissidents

A magazine called Cognitive Dissidents came online several weeks ago, so its long past time that I link to it. The contributors include a core of philosophy grad students from UW Madison, plus other philosophers and intellectuals. It has a magazine rather than a blog format, and promises regular issues rather than the chaotic and teasing semi-regular updating of the blog format. The current issue has several interesting essays on topics ranging from ethical eating through fair trade, global responsibility for poverty and the distinction between war and terrorism to reflections on the relationship between philosopizing and political activism. Worth keeping an eye on.

Thanks for passing this along, Jim! Sounds a little like Utne Press online.
