First, a plug, if I may: the Minds Online conference. Starting August 31. www.mindsonline.philosophyofbrains.com

The conference is held online and it features the philosophy and science of the mind, broadly construed. Each session has 4 to 5 papers and will be open to comments for a week, so participants are better able to fit the conference into their schedule. Each contributed paper has a handful of invited commentaries from established and early career philosophers and scientists. I get more excited and amazed every time I re-read the program. We posted the papers for the first session a bit early so people can get a head start on the papers if they want. Invited commentaries and open commenting on Session 1 starts tomorrow. Ok, I'll stop monologuing....it's just that it's going to be so great!

Second, I recall two papers that I enjoyed recently: (a) Dougherty, Baron, and Miller's paper on hypotheses about the underrepresentation of women in philosophy [http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1002&context=fpq&utm] and (b) James Andow's "How Distinctive Is Philosophers' Intuition-talk?" [http://t.co/SOIzsufOai].

I've been told the link for James Andow's paper is wrong/broken. My apologies. Hopefully this one works: http://philpapers.org/rec/ANDHDI-2


In philosophy of religion, new work on the kalam argument that I found interesting has recently been published: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/23311983.2015.1062461
