The PGR and the September Statement

The last few days have been quite unusual in the philosophy blogosphere. Since I’ve taken a public stand, I thought I should post something on my own blog about these developments.

Sally Haslanger and David Velleman posted a Statement of Concern regarding Brian Leiter’s emails to Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins and Noelle McAfee. This was followed by a September Statement calling for Prof. Leiter’s resignation as editor of the Philosophical Gourmet Report, as well as a separate list of Recent Events Involving Brian Leiter detailing further allegations of hostile conduct towards members of the philosophy community.

Today at DailyNous, Alex Rosenberg and I both have guest posts regarding the controversy: Rosenberg and May. I defend the September Statement and urge philosophers to sign it. More discussion on the future direction of the PGR is provided in an earlier post at DailyNous.
