It is October

  1. October is one of my favorite months, along with Januray.
  2. Fiona is turing 10, "double digits"!
  3. My birthday is the 27th.
  4. I turned in my dissertation last month.
  5. I'm organizing a conference right now.
  6. I'm applying for jobs this month and next.
  7. I'm putting together a book MS for OUP.
  8. I'm teaching full time and loving it.
  9. I've only got one more item for a top ten list.
  10. Now my top ten list is complete.

What will your book be about? I'm guessing something in epistemology.

It's called _Evidentialism and Its Discontents_. It's a collection of essays by leading epistemologists (and me) about the role of evidence in rational belief. It'll be a rolicking good read!

I'm sure I'll be good; I'll try to look it up.

It's not on for some reason. Has it been released?

Is there any where we could find some of the essays in the mean time, or are there any other books you would recommend on the subject?

The essays won't be available in any format for quite some time, but if you are interested in the subject, the best thing to do is to read _Evidentialism_ by Conee and Feldman to see what these essays would be resopnding to. If that's too arcane, then I recommend Feldman's introduction to epistemology.
