Welcome to Russell Blackford

I’m very pleased to announce that Dr. Russell Blackford has joined the blogging team at Talking Philosophy.

Russell is an Australian writer and philosopher. He’ll probably be best known to people here as the editor, with Udo Schuklenk, of “50 Voices of Disbelief” and as the guy behind the blog, Metamagician and the Hellfire Club. He also has a new book coming out early in January, “Freedom of Religion and the Secular State”, which hopefully he’ll be telling us something about.

Russell will continue to maintain his own blog, but I’m sure his more philosophically oriented posts will find a good home here at Talking Philosophy, and certainly they’ll be a welcome addition to our site.

Welcome, Russell!

  1. Welcome Russell!

    Look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Well, it looks like I’m a reader of Talking Philosophy now. I’m hoping for some stuff on meta-ethics and moral realism.

  3. On ya Rus!
    Love your work over at Meta Madge. Look forward to copping some more of you over here.

    Hello Russell,

    We’ve met before online and have generally not been in agreement, but I’ve always noticed your courtesy, patience, wit and intelligence.

    I’m looking forward to reading your posts.

  5. Glad to have you on the TP team.
