Spring break is ending, and the last stretch of spring semester starts tomorrow. What have I been up to since my last update?
- I was quoted by Dan Berrett in his April 8 Chronicle of Higher Education article about Robert Shiller, "One Economist's Mission to Redeem the Field of Fianance." The article is behind a paywall, but you can read about it here.
- Just one new post at Psychology Today (today, in fact): Are You More Likely to Lose Yourself—or Find Yourself—in a Relationship?
- The Economics and Ethics blog hit its milestone 500th post, so we celebrated with a new design (see to the right) and our long-delayed teaching page. Also, I contributed one substantive post, Revise and Resubmit... with Style! (April 10), which I'm referring to as my first and possibly last post on writing. (I have far too much respect for my writer-blogger friends!)
- I posted a lot to The Comics Professor the last couple weeks: of particular philosophical interest were So heroes in the DCU can kill when they "need to" or have to? (April 6), Two-Face shows us both sides of the virtue ethics/situationism debate (April 8), What do chocolate and radishes have to do with Green Lantern? (April 9), and Another perspective on why Batman doesn't kill--and the problems with it (April 13). (I also posted a satirical piece for April Fools' Day, DC changes Batman's origin: Thomas and Martha Wayne to have been Nazi sympathizers.)
- Downton Abbey and Philosophy is now available on iTunes and Kindle (with Nook coming any day).
- The paperback edition of The Thief of Time: Philosophical Essays on Procrastination is apparently available at Amazon (ahead of the stated May 1 release date).
Other than working on the same papers, chapters, and book proposals as last time, I was arranging my travel plans for my short European "tour" this summer--the organizer of the Rotterdam workshop generously covered my transatlantic travel, so I'm been busy booking all the short flights and hotel stays to get me around Europe. More on that later!
