One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 is to “get more organized.” To that end, I’ve decided to get rid of a bookshelf’s worth of philosophy journals that I (partly) inherited from my erstwhile officemate, Joe Biehl, now Executive Director of Young Philosophers of New York. I tried unsuccessfully to offload these on the university’s library, but got literally no response from them (although to be fair, that was a whole Library Director ago, so maybe I should try again). When I taught at elite institutions, it was customary for people in this situation to leave unwanted journals in the faculty lounge for eager graduate students to snap up, but I no longer teach at an elite institution, so that’s not an option. (Indeed, that’s how Joe and I acquired this useless collection in the first place.)
I’m reluctant to
throw them out recycle such precious cargo, but have decided to do so if I can’t figure out what else to do with them by end of January. (Yes, that’s a threat.) So here’s a list of journals, in case PoT readers or others are interested in acquiring copies. If you are interested, contact me offline, and I’ll make arrangements for getting them to you. This is just a bare listing of journals, by name; I don’t have time right now to list the specific volumes and issues I happen to have.
Australasian Journal of Philosophy
Canadian Journal of Philosophy
New Left Review
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
