Anscombe on sale

The Moral Philosophy of Elizabeth Anscombe, featuring essays by Candace Vogler, Roger Teichmann, and me, among others, is available at not much more than half-price. The full price for the paperback is $39.90, but you can get it for $24.48 plus $3.99 shipping from Book Depository US. Oddly I don't see this price when I go to their website, but if I go through amazon it shows up as an option. (Does this link work?)

In the UK you can get it for under £18 here.

More from me at philpercs

On the strange idea that jobs you don't get are usually ones you are better off without and the surprisingly common idea that taking a (single) course will give people a skill or virtue they currently lack, e.g. critical thinking, writing, ethics.

Wittgenstein quiz

This OUP quiz is from last year but I've just discovered it today. Hint: you won't get the questions all right if you think Wittgenstein made a significant contribution to the philosophy of religion.
