Hello my name is Matthew and I too read the Leiter Reports. Today Leiter points to the new Secular Philosophy blog that features contributors such as Daniel Dennett and Colin McGinn (aka The Usual Suspects). Leiter uses the announcement to take issue with remarks from a recent McGinn interview in which McGinn remarks that there are fewer and fewer “Christian philosophers”. Concurring with remarks that appeared here in the past, Leiter concludes that, “To be sure, religious philosophers are probably still a minority in academic philosophy in the U.S., but my sense is they are less of a minority than 25 years ago.”
I’ll be adding Secular Philosophy to the blogroll just as soon as I can figure out how to get it working again.
