My name is Ben Bronner. I’m a graduate student in the philosophy department at Rutgers University. I’ve published in mind, epistemology, and language, though my main interests these days are in ethics. You can see my publications here, and can contact me at ben [dot] bronner [at] rutgers [dot] edu.

  7. Brilliant. I am going to recommend it to my colleagues and students. But, if you go to grad school, what will happen to those who have become addicted to this site?

    • Thanks! As for AOS, I’m currently most interested in normative and applied ethics. But in the past I’ve mostly worked on mind. We’ll have to wait and see, I suppose.

  14. Dear Ben, is there a way of suggesting posts, or submitting prospective guest posts?

    • Hi Peter. First, thanks for your interest. You can email me at ben [dot] bronner [at] rutgers [dot] edu. I’d love to hear your suggestions for future posts. I’m a bit less enthusiastic about the prospect of guest posts. If you’ve written a post that’s really good I’d be happy to post it. The submissions people send me, however, are invariably too rough or too much of a mixed bag for me to feel comfortable posting them, even if they have promise.
