How I Became a Republican

I’ve joined a group blog called Public Reason; it’s for professional political philosophers and is mostly limited topic-wise to such matters as “check out this upcoming conference,” “check out my new working paper,” and “hey, what’s a good way to explain Fichte to an intro class?” So it’s not a high-volume blog – but if you’re in the profession you might want to get involved.

To oversimplify somewhat, it’s set up so that profs can post and comment, grad students can only comment, and everybody else can just read the wisdom of the first two groups. So it’s kinda like Plato’s Republic.

    The right-libertarian in me abhors the central-planning aspect, and the left-libertarian abhors the lack of democracy…

    Darn it! I can’t join because I haven’t completed my Ph.D. yet…..unless “studies” refers to coursework and not dissertation and degree.
