Analytic Philosophy: The Journal!

Some of you know this, but some of you might not. Philosophical Books is changing format and changing its title. Analytic Philosophy (the journal) should be coming to library shelves near you soon(ish). My experience with them has been very good. Excellent comments returned quickly.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will that out. Who is the author?

Hi Clayton,

Do you have any predictions about the level of stature this journal will enjoy? Is Philosophical Books already well respected? If so, can we predict that Analytic Philosophy will be well respected too?

Dear Anon,

My guess is that it will be reasonably prestigious in reasonably short order. It's a Wiley journal, so it has good distribution and online availability and given how dysfunctional many other journals are right now, I imagine many reasonably talented younger folks will start sending them decent work. So, maybe it will be comparable to Ratio or Dialectica in a few years time. That's a guess.
