Philosophy of Mind and Graduate Philosophy Study

An Administrative Note

I’ve been thinking for a while about how this blog will handle anonymous posts/comments. The conclusion I have come to is this: the expectation on this blog is that you sign your comments with your real name. This especially goes for those of us who choose to comment on paper submissions. The point of this blog is interaction with other philosophy students interested in philosophy of mind, and if some of us are hiding behind aliases, that really tends to skew the sorts of interactions we have toward the lowest common internet denominator.

Now, if for some reason I post on a topic that requires anonymity for some reason, that’s fine. However, from here on it is unlikely that I will approve many unsigned comments. I apologize if this is inconvenient for some of you out there, but you can always create a separate account to post from so that your less savory internet activities are not tied back to your name.
