The 103rd Philosophers' Carnival is now up at Philosophy, etc. with a link to my post on seeing the world through teleology-colored glasses.
Also of interest in the new philosophers' carnival is Chris Hallquist's discussion of reformed epistemology and moral realism. In the course of his discussion, Chris gives a narrative of the history of early modern philosophy which is similar to my Berkeley-centric narrative (despite not mentioning Berkeley): Descartes sets up an impossible program, Hume shows that either Cartesian or classical empiricist assumptions lead inevitably to skepticism, and this motivates a 'Reidian' program which continues to this day. (Chris doesn't attribute the program to Reid, but describes the program in much the same way I did.) The clearest 20th century exponents of the 'Reidian' program are G.E. Moore and Alvin Plantinga.Posted by Kenny at February 1, 2010 4:21 PM
