Here is a list of cognitive science and/or philosophy blogs. Feel free to share it and/or suggest additions to the list.
1. The List

Being A Philosopher Of Color What is it like to be a person of color in philosophy?...narratives of personal experiences, submitted by readers, of life in philosophy as a person of color. Brain Hammer Pete Mandik's Blog. Pete is professor of philosophy at William Paterson University. And he's in a band. Brain Study Neuroscience blog from neuroscientist and science writer Dana Smith (PhD, Cambridge). Dana's posts consistently strike the perfect balance between brevity and detail. Brains "Since 2005, a leading forum for work in the philosophy and science of mind." Certain Doubts A blog devoted to matters epistemic. Began on June 9, 2004. Conscious Entities A philosophy of mind and consciousness blog. It's good stuff. And it features great drawings. Daily Nous "News for and about the philosophy profession." Ethics Etc.

Everyday Ignorance "This site highlights the numerous rational failures that permeate our lives, from our beliefs about work and society to our deepest personal values." Explicit Content "...about how to do philosophy—what skills are important in philosophy, how philosophers think, how to teach philosophy." Fallacy Files "A collection [and explanation] of named fallacies. That is, types of bad reasoning — such as "ad hominem" — which commonly appear in everyday arguments." Fallacy Files "A collection [and explanation] of named fallacies. That is, types of bad reasoning — such as "ad hominem" — which commonly appear in everyday arguments." Heterodox Academy "Our mission is to increase viewpoint diversity in the academy, with a special focus on the social sciences." Language Log A group blog on language and linguistics started in the summer of 2003. Great for — among other things — answering questions like, "How did [phrase here] come to mean what it means today?" Less Wrong Evangelically rationalist blog. They say being rational leads to a better life. Warning: it works best if everyone joins in—otherwise, you end up frustrated with most people. So join in! PEA Soup "A blog dedicated to philosophy, ethics, and academia." Philosophers' Carnival ...showcas[ing] the best philosophical posts from a wide range of weblogs. We invite submissions from bloggers and readers, and periodically collate the submitted posts into one big round-up (or "carnival"). Philosophy Etc.

Practical Ethics "...daily ethical analysis of news events written by authors drawn from students and researchers [at the] University of Oxford, and from our visitors and guest authors." Quixotic Dispatches Michael Bishop's blog. His goal? To explain what he's learned about how to live and how to reason. He says it should only take a few dozen posts. Syndicate The most beautiful and dynamic ad-free and open-source platform for scholarship in the humanities, if you ask me. The Emergence Of Relativism "Relativism is often thought to be associated with oppressive or facist politics, to be in opposition to truth, and to undermine the authority of experts. [...] these characterisations are at best over-simplifications, or at worst just false." The Hardest Science "A psychology blog. Thoughts about the mind, science, society, and whatever else." The Junkyard "A scholarly blog devoted to the study of imagination." The Non Sequitur It's like fact-checking the news, but it's argument-checking. Philosophy types will love it. The View From The Owl's Roost Noms Arpaly's blog. "Raw Philosophical Ideas and an Idiosyncratic Take on Life. Please Forgive the Typos. Whatever does not kill me provides me with anecdotes. (Well, not quite, but it’s closer to the truth than the original)." Think Tonk Clayton Littlejohn's Blog. I don't get the gorilla image. Anyone? Tomkow Open access philosophy by Terrence Tomkow. What Is It Like to Be A Woman in Philosophy? "...devoted to short observations sent in by readers, about life as a woman in philosophy." And They have a new blog, "What We're Doing About What It's Like" (also in this list). 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 cu-boulder's center for values and social policy"
Is there another philosophy blog that should be on this list? Feel free to mention it in the comments or contact me to tell me about it.
