Philosophical Blogs

Blogs display the opinions of individuals or collections of individuals. They are often of uneven quality. Philosophical blogs are of particular interest as they show thoughtful people reasoning together about various subjects. The following two links are a gateway into the philosophical blog world. They are unusual in that they are searchable by topic, philosopher, student, and university.
