"God bless us, every one!"

Berit says I should get my ass back on my blog. So here's the update. Christmas in Jersey with the family. There are rumors of a reunion with the Brooklyn side. They usually like to add a little coffee to their sambuca, so I expect it to be colorful. Giving commentary about intuitionistic truth at the APA. Will post on that soon. Looking forward to catching up with friends in Baltimore, although I'll be pretty busy with my department's metaphysics hire. May spend some time in NY and then off to Tucson for what I expect to be a very intense ontology conference. Berit and I will ride horses across the desert in the rain and discuss our counterfactual theory of essential properties.

ANU offers to Schellenberg and Southwood

ANU recently delivered offers to Susanna Schellenberg (Pittsburgh) and Nicholas Southwood (ANU).

Schellenberg currently holds a postdoc at ANU. Her paper "The Situation-Dependency of Perception" is forthcoming in JPhil and "Action and Self-location in Perception" appeared in Mind. Her book in progress is titled, Perception in Perspective.

Southwood currently holds a postdoc at ANU and was a Fulbright Scholar at Princeton University. His book Contractualism and the Foundations of Morality is forthcoming with OUP.

With the recent hire of Jonathan Schaffer, acceptances from Schellenberg and Southwood would really add to the strength of the department.

UPDATE: Schellenberg and Southwood have accepted.
