The finalists for the 3 Quarks Daily philosophy blog post contest have been determined, and I’m pleased that my post on Counterfactuals and Modal Epistemology has made it into the final. Here are all the finalists in alphabetical order:
- Brian Leiter’s Nietzsche Blog: Katsafanas on “Nietzsche’s Philosophical Psychology”
- Justin Erik Halldor Smith: More on Non-Western Philosophy (the Very Idea)
- Minds and Brains: The Myth of Sensory Immediacy – Why Berkeley Was Wrong
- PEA Soup: Am I a Consequentialist?

- The Immanent Frame: Secularism, atheism, antihumanism
- Tomkow: The Retributive Theory of Property

It is perhaps worth noting that my post is really the only one in metaphysics — there weren’t even very many entries in metaphysics. The winners will be selected by Akeel Bilgrami and announced on September 22.
I’m pleased to report that my entry for the 3 Quarks Daily best philosophy blog post made it to the semifinals. Check out the other top 20 semifinalists on the website. Not necessarily a huge indication of esteem since anyone was eligible to vote for the entries, but nevertheless. Fingers crossed for a spot in the final! If you haven’t seen it yet, my entry is a post on Counterfactuals and Modal Epistemology.
I’d like to point any readers towards the vote on the best Philosophy Blog Post of the year at 3 Quarks Daily. My entry is number 33 and any votes will of course be much appreciated, if you happen to like the nominated post!
