Philosophy

I am the associate editor of 1000 Word Philosophy, an excellent website with short (1000 words!) and accessible articles on philosophical topics. I myself have written three articles for the site: Practical Reasons, Consequentialism, and (Im)partiality.

Another fantastic online philosophy resource is The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. It has tons of entries, all written by experts. The articles tend to be long and can be rather technical.

For something more accessible, check out The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Check out the podcasts page for some recommended philosophy podcasts.

Some of my favorite works are Ethical Intuitionism by Michael Huemer, Moral Realism by Russ Shafer-Landau, the classic Utilitarianism by John Stuart Mill, and anything written by Derek Parfit. For a great, accessible primer on metaethics (and the relationship between God and morality), check out Value and Virtue in a Godless Universe by Erik J. Wielenberg.

For an example of a great journal article in contemporary analytic philosophy, why not try Susan Wolf’s “Moral Saints”? Should we try to be as morally good as we can possibly be? Susan Wolf has some thoughts about this.

Could morality have a source? Chris Heathwood will tell you why it cannot.
