Dr. Arpaly works on Philosophy of Action, Normative Ethics, and Value Theory. (Last post I saw was from August, 2018. Not sure if the blog is still being updated.) Utilitymon A general philosophy blog written in Polish by Tomasz Herok. What is it like to be a philosopher? "in-depth autobiographical interviews with philosophers. Interviews you can’t find anywhere else. In the interviews, you get a sense of what makes living, breathing philosophers tick." What It's Like To Be A Philosopher What comes to mind when you imagine a philosopher? Actually, forget what comes to mind. Just read these interviews. They'll be a much better indication of what philosophers are actually like. What's Wrong? "The not quite official blog of [the University Colorado, Boulder's] center for Values and Social Policy"
