What is this?

A few years ago I thought it would be great if we had a philosophical debates blog. I've decided that it's a good time to make it happen. Here's how I envisage things going. We'll sometimes have two authors address some single question. Each author will post an initial argument, address her or his opponent's position, and then respond to his or her opponent. Sometimes, a single author will present a work. A commentator will offer comments. The author responds. Everyone is invited to leave comments. Now that it is so easy to record and post video content online, I'd ideally like participants to post video files (I'd recommend vimeo) and if they'd like they can also post links to their papers for download. It should be great fun.

Apologies for the cheesy banner. I'll hopefully have that fixed soon.

Very interesting idea. I'm excited to see how it plays out.
