When Philosophers are Carnies....

The first-ever Philosophers' Carnival is up at Philosophy, etc. There are some great submissions that make my modest little offering seem rather elementary. Of special interest:

* Paradox vs. Surprise at "Certain Doubts"

* The God-Man Identity Theory by William Vallicella at "Maverick Philosopher".

Those who are interested in this post might want to check out my previous post on the Incarnation; there I criticized Vallicella's article, to which his post here is a follow-up. I agree with his basic arguments, taken against the position he sets up as OCI; I don't think, however, that his formulation of OCI is accurate.

* Jeremy Pierce, as might be expected, has an excellent contribution in Open Theism and Evil, Part I, at Prosblogion

Jeremy has put up Part II here.

* Tom at "Legalistic Fingerpointing" contributes Don't throw out our philosophy just yet, a well-argued and very readable essay that from an atheistic perspective defends philosophy from the charge of being just "a refuge for wooly-thinking theism-collaborators"

I will be hosting the next Philosophers' Carnival (September 6). The general information on the Carnival can be found here. You don't have to be a philosopher to submit; all you need is a post that is philosophically interesting (and that's a very vast field). Only one submission will be accepted from a given author for each Carnival. Submissions should contain the words "Philosophers' Carnival" in the subject heading, for easy identification. The address to which they should be submitted is:

bwatson{at}chass{dot}utoronto{dot)ca

with @ for {at} and . for {dot}. I would prefer to have the submissions by 11 pm EST, but this is a preference, not a hard-and-fast deadline.
