Happy Labor Day, Playtonics!
I am elated to announce that Playtonic Dialogues is a nominee for the 3 Quarks Daily 2010 Prize In Philosophy! 3 Quarks Daily is a website that pools together interesting articles from around the web on a daily basis, “in the areas of science, design, literature, current affairs, art, and anything else we deem inherently fascinating.” This year they are hosting the 2nd annual prize for the best blog writing in philosophy. Akeel Bilgrami, the Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University as well as the Director of the Heyman Center for the Humanities, is judging the contest. The first place award, called the “Top Quark,” will include a cash prize of one thousand dollars, so lot of money is at stake!
