More on Philosophy Majors...

Yet another article on majoring in philosophy-- This one's from
Boston University's *Daily Free Press* (a student paper, by the way,
which I used to read quite frequently...).

Maybe it's possible that the public perception of majoring in
philosophy could change.

Philosophy of Sport

This might be of interest to some of you:


A new blog, Philosophy of Sport, has just been launched.

With an international group of contributors including both
established and newer scholars in the field, the aim is to promote an
international discussion of the philosophical dimensions of sport
among scholars and others interested in this area
of philosophy. We encourage you to read the blog, post comments, and
direct your students to this forum. Thanks.

of these philosophy classes.)
