    1. Ants is obviously an academic code word for niggers.

      Please take your despicable racism elsewhere.

  1. “To execute longtime residents of the United States for traffic violations would clearly be a violation of their human rights” — Jazz Tranley.

    Really nudges my noodle.

    1. Huh… whatever happened to this, the freest blog on the internet? See, this is what happens when you don’t internalize your myrmecological self.

    1. Several. And their friends can see their posts and comments. Many of them have fairly restricted friends lists though, because there are corners of the discipline where people anonymously gossip and speculate about their colleagues’ sex lives, job prospects, where they copy-paste conversations, and so on. How odd!

      1. One important service of metablog is to discourage people from keeping their narcissistic personality disorders on display.

    2. Leiter linked to an excellent post by Jason Brennan at BHL. I sense the Maoists have finally stepped over the line that will bring some pushback.

    3. Have any senior philosophers spoken up on social media about ants? Yes, yes they have, but all of you are ignoring this.

  2. If you don’t think someone who has been identified by others since birth as a Tetramorium can truly have been born a Pheidole, then you are a bigot and may not publish in my journal.

    If you think that a Myrmica can just up and declare themselves a Pogonomyrmex by fiat one day, then boy, I don’t think I have to spell out why you’re a bigot and may not publish in my journal.

    1. YES finally we are getting somewhere! I may not agree with your thesis, but I agree with your incorporation of ants. This is the discussion you all need, even if it’s not the one you deserve.

  3. Lol, the white genocide prof, George Ciccariello-Maher, signed the Hypatia open letter. Of course.

    1. To be fair, so did Joseph Djugashvili of Tiflis College & Seminary at one point. (Alas his name has now been removed).

    1. Lisa Guenther and Lori Gruen! They were near the top signatories on the open letter, and like Chloe Taylor said quickly and visibly attacked her. What a shitty, shitty way to treat your own student; I’ve totally lost respect for them.

      Eating your own young is right.

      1. I think we need a cast of characters list.

        Rebecca Tuval, the original criminal, who has successfully submitted a doctoral thesis at Vanderbilt University, as well as perpetrating a thought-crime at the journal Hypatia.

        The Advisory Committee for her PhD thesis at Vanderbilt:
        Advisor Name Title
        Kelly Oliver Committee Chair
        Charles Scott Committee Member
        David Wood Committee Member
        José Medina Committee Member
        Lisa Guenther Committee Member
        Lori Gruen Committee Member

        Chloe Taylor, Professor at Alberta and self-confessed friend of Tuval, so clearly guilty by association; she possesses a PhD in philosophy from Toronto.

        There is also a Nora Semenstain at the University of Tennessee, which I understand is a football rival of Vanderbilt.

        1. You are free to engage in hyperbole, but you are not free to engage in ignorants, that is, ignoring the ants!

  4. BTW Hasn’t been noted yet that Bruce Jenner is neither a woman, nor “trans,” anything. Go ahead and REEEE.

  5. Enzo Rossi · May 2, 2017 at 12:56 pm
    OK so this is what this is about: some scholars want a methodological monopoly. They don’t want people to write about trans issues in the analytic style, at least not without lots of nods (and citations) to auto-ethnographic and/or postmodernist literature. They fear what some have called, bizarrely, “philosophical gentrification”. And they know that organising e-mobs is more effective than attacking the gentrifiers’ arguments.

  6. Fantastic, thoughtful comment over at ‘philmetablog’ which was set up to deal with the ‘ant problem’. I thought I’d repost it here (I didn’t write it) in case the philmetablog doesn’t take off and this place remains dominant. I think one or two italicizations may have gotten lost but the original is at https://philmetablog.wordpress.com/2017/05/02/forsta-blogginlagget/#comments

    Couple more thoughts on this:

    1. Deadnaming. Like (I presume) most people outside this particular academic-political ghetto, I had never heard this expression before. But it really epitomizes something. It’s just too obvious the way certain ‘conceptual’ innovations serve the interests of the group. It sounds awful, doesn’t it? You can just see the wide-eyed expression of horror. I can’t believe he deadnamed zer! It sounds a bit like murder or something. But here’s what it amounted to: Tuvel used the expression ‘Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner’. That’s it. This was one of the mob’s main examples of Tuvel’s departing so widely from ‘scholarly’ norms that her paper was awful enough to be retracted by the journal.

    2. Transracial vs transgender. Ever since the Jenner and Dolezal stories came out at nearly the same time, this has been the elephant in the room for ‘activist scholars’. Didn’t we hear for decades about how race is a social construct and gender is a social construct, as if both of these were major insights, crucial to understanding all kinds of oppression? And yet here was as clear a case as one could want of race and gender being treated by our ideological overlords as if they had nothing in common whatever. This wasn’t whimsical, either: you could see how they couldn’t possibly treat the cases as remotely similar, it was too glaringly inconsistent with any number of their other irreversible ideological commitments. And yet it was just really hard to give a plausible account of what the huge, huge difference was supposed to be. In any genuine community of intellectual inquiry, this would be viewed as an opportunity to take stock, clarify concepts, question presuppositions, and so on. Compare ‘Why exactly is later-term abortion different from infanticide?’ Obviously very few ‘progressives’ have ever really taken this question at all seriously, but at least they’ve recognized that, in the context of actual philosophy, they’re obliged to pretend to.

    I think that here we have the key to the extraordinarily frenzied hysteria that has greeted Tuvel’s paper. Follow the affect: it’s not because what Tuvel wrote was so implausible or hard to defend: it’s precisely because on the face of it it’s just so obvious. It’s the most clearly-marked pressure-point in their whole massive ideological edifice. What can they do when it’s attacked, if they have basically no argumentative resources? There’s no alternative to screaming bloody murder.

    3. Scholarly standards. Since they have basically no counterarguments, they have to claim that the reason the article should be retracted is that is doesn’t meet fundamental standards of scholarship. (The only other option I can think of is to try to turn it into basically a health-and-safety issue; Mark Lance’s attempts to justify censorship in order to prevent ‘predictable harms’ resulting from the ‘cavalier bantering-about’ of certain ideas functions as a kind of reductio of this kind of approach.) The point at which we are asked to take this seriously is the point at which we start to feel seriously insulted. Are we supposed to believe that the activists would have regarded an article somehow defending (that is, trying to defend) the relevant orthodoxy, but exhibiting the same alleged ‘scholarly deficiencies’, as similarly requiring retraction? That this has nothing to do with content? One can’t even take seriously the idea that one’s supposed to take this seriously. And the endless cant from Amy Donahue and others about the importance of upholding scholarly standards! From these people? Have you read any ‘philosophical’ work on ‘trans*’ issues lately? (What’s with the asterisk, by the way? I mean, obviously it’s a shibboleth — Drabek uses it — but what’s it supposed to be about?)

    The only good news here is that politicized ‘scholarship’ gets even more discredited, and more enemies of intellectual inquiry identify themselves by scurrying out of the woodwork to sign petitions.

    1. The problem (for you) is that there is no “ant problem”, only the ant perspective! Which, of course, is being shut down here.

        1. Can you give me three reasons why? If not, then your vertebrate bias is stronger than I initially realized!

  7. Wondering if anyone knows about this…. if a journal retracts and apologizes for an article, do they still have the publication rights? Or could Tuvel now submit and get it published elsewhere? Given that the philosophy community basically seems to think that what Hypatia did is egregious and disturbing, it would probably be quite a feather in the cap of a more scholarly journal if they could give it a home.

    1. Hold on, my friend. Tuvel’s stuff is crap, and keeps being crap despite the awful treatment she is receiving. no serious journal would publish that rubbish….
      oh wait: Phil Imprint just published the Sexual Orientation by Robinoff, so sure: they will publish Tuvel’s crap as well.

      1. I mean, if by “just” you mean over a year ago, then sure. And what makes that paper “rubbish” and/or “crap”? Try to use reason instead of your low-effort edgelord rhetoric.

        1. 2:22 here. Tuvel’s arguments are sound, sure, but are worth a chat over a beer – at least if your IQ is 130 or more. I was taking philosophy papers to be a bit deeper. but yeah, the profession is now filled with low IQ people and the platitudes of Tuvel look like a piece of good philosophy.

      2. Nah, I think it’s probably interesting, since it hit such a nerve and was an actual inquiry, not just a moral tirade or a bit of virtue signalling. It might not be part of core analytic philosophy, but it might still be a piece of writing that, especially given the reaction, out to be published in an appropriate place.

  8. Someone is using social media to harass some of the people who signed the petition against Tuvel’s piece. This shit really has to stop.

  9. I’ve seen a lot of people quietly take down the nastiest ad hominem comments they made against Tuvel this weekend, which I find a troubling evasion of responsibility.

    Do these people stand by their comments, or not? If they do, they should leave them up. If not, they should apologize.

    1. Putting the content of what they said aside, I don’t think it’s fair to criticize that form of behavior in itself, said one anonymous commenter to another. Though maybe they were happy to have their name on the comment when they thought it was going to score them some points.

      1. Fair enough. Still, though, we’re just anonymous jerks posting in an online cesspool. We could be anybody, and in all probability we’re nobodies. When you castigate someone openly, you’re generally expressing the expectation that you ought to get away with it, which in turn implies a support for norms on which the person you castigate should have lower status than you (at least in the context). That’s not thing.

  10. An update from the statement writers:

    “Note from statement writers (added 5/1, at approximately the 520th signatory): “We acknowledge that this statement should have named anti-Blackness directly. The statement is not an exhaustive summary of the many harms caused by this article. We hope it will at least serve as a way to register that harm and issue a demand for a retraction. This is one step in the direction of seeking accountability for the harms committed by its publishing– and to begin a conversation about the larger problems with our discipline it represents. And we thank Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (and others) for pointing out the dangerous erasure of anti-Blackness and the erasure of the Black labor on which the rhetoric of our own letter is built””

    lol even the statement of protest was “problematic”! HEADS MUST ROLL FOR THIS

  11. In this post, I reproduce a comment from Mark Norris Lance on a Facebook post made by John Corvino regarding le l’affaire de Tuvel. This comment needs to be entered into disciplinary public consciousness before it vanishes from the internet.

    Lance: ” I’ve put quite a few criticisms of the article out publicly. Those criticisms are correct. If you want to substantively engage with them, please do, but just announcing that everyone criticizing the paper is wrong, and arguing in bad faith suggests to me that you are not actually competent to be in this discussion because the criticisms are pretty basic.”

    The sheer spectacle of self-indulgent hubris is a wonder to behold. I suppose this is what happens when one abandons realism to enter the space of reasons.

    1. I’m glad to see that Corvino has convinced some people that they need to back off, but it’s a little sickening to see some of the leaders of the mob declare the importance of being kind without taking any public steps to remedy the situation they’ve caused. I guess now they’ll submit their letter to Hypatia to demand the retraction with kindness in their hearts and their names hidden from public view.

      1. I know — Kukla and Lance applaud the vile open letter to Hypatia — then pose for a misty-eyed group hug, singing a hymn to kindness. It has all the conviction of the sentimental tears of Fyodor Karamazov.

        Lance in particular continues to outdo himself:

        But presenting this as if the main focus of critics has been an attack on Tuvel, is simply not true… [N]othing in the letter, nothing I’ve seen from prominent philosophers attacks her.

        (That’s from the DN thread.) The only serious question this raises is: Is he just pretending to be stupid? As if the signing of the open letter to Hypatia by Lori Gruen and Lisa Guenther, who were both examiners of Tuvel’s PhD (just to take an especially piquant and shameful example), couldn’t possibly be interpreted as a hostile act!

        Then there’s this:

        Despite the point having already been made several times, person after person continues to say things like this: “Most bad scholarship goes quietly into the night unread and uncited. Why is this one viewed as a moral crime?”… That is the question being posed over and over as if it is a serious one. Well, then, I suppose a serious answer would start with the murder of trans folks on the street, their brutal treatment by police, their constant public shaming and abuse…

        (I especially love the implicit appeal for sympathy — eyeroll, sigh — on account of the tedium and indignity of having to point out the obvious yet again to these benighted idiots.) Yeah, the only problem here is that, if you look at the criticisms of Tuvel, including those on the thread to which Lance is here contributing, a huge proportion of them clearly allege or imply that her paper’s ‘scholarly deficiencies’ alone warrant its retraction. There is rarely the slightest suggestion that they would not have warranted it if it weren’t for all the horrible harm the paper was contributing to. On the contrary, the ‘purely scholarly’ nature of the objections is frequently emphasized, in a risibly futile attempt to conceal their ideological motivation. Furthermore — and I want you to read this question carefully, Mark — if the real problem is the harm, why mention the scholarly nature of the ‘deficiencies’ at all? — let alone give it so much emphasis.

    1. “I imagine that my departure from the thread will be interpreted by some as a concession to your argument. It’s not.”

      Don’t worry, Justin. Only good philosophers change their credences when they can’t refute an argument with a conclusion they don’t like. And no one would ever confuse you for a good philosopher.

      1. He also tries to refute Hellie’s argument by ad hominem reasoning: Hellie was Ludlow’s friend, therefore his argument is not valid. Weinberg is a pathetic savage clown who should be driven into the sea.

      1. The comments are pretty juvenile. It’s not a good look to interrupt someone’s discussion with petty insults and spam. If you think the guy is wrong, let him make his feeble argument. Attacking him wildly lets people fall back on the “comments on posts about feminism justify feminism” line.

        1. No, what is “juvenile” is first install larvae (not naming names). JJI is basically an alate queen!

    1. Kipnis notes many times in the book that there are legitimate Title IX claims that are handled badly. I don’t remember her saying that campus rape activists in general were *all* nuts, so I don’t know what the reports of reasonable activists are supposed to show. On Pogin, it speaks well of her that she flagged the procedural irregularity, but that hardly vindicates her, given that she filed so many absurd complaints in the first place.

      One thing that’s good about Ichikawa’s post is the focus on administrative power and procedural fairness, and the overlapping consensus that these are problem areas. That hasn’t generated as much discussion here as it should have. People who are generally at odds and heavily polarized might still be able to make progress through discussion of those issues.

    2. “Meanwhile, Itchy continues to masturbate into his own face:”

      Still laughing as I type this. Good one!

          1. Regular expressions won’t help you learn about ants! Though they may help you sort through some ant data… so actually maybe they will!

      1. ‘“Meanwhile, Itchy continues to masturbate into his own face:”

        Still laughing as I type this. Good one!’

        Agreed. Amazing.

  12. I would say that I can’t believe I was banned from this, the freest of blogs on the internet. But, I’ve come to accept that people don’t like ants, so they’re trying to ban ants… interesting!

    1. Whatever happened to free speech (and freedom of religion)? I guess pmmm wants to shut this down. Oh well, 13,000+ species of ants outlast us all.

  13. Here’s something the moderator can do–let BB and his brother do their thing, and once or twice a day cull their comments from the blog. I predict that a week or two of that will discourage the guys.

    But you should leave the comments from the earlier threads. Given the way the Kipnis and Hypatia malfeasances are coming into wider discussion, it will be good to have a record of how the Blanchards behaved.

      1. Bravo. Here’s hoping the Blanchards hate-read the blog in the interim and see what’s going on. They came at a perfect time. And they’ve no doubt raised the visibility of the metablogs in the circles the traffic in.

      2. Is the owner of PMMMB trolling everyone by claiming to “ban” someone from posting on a blog that doesn’t require comment moderation, and in a planet that has something called “The Tor Browser”?

    1. “it will be good to have a record of how the Blanchards behaved.”

      I can see the stories now. During a time when there were wide-ranging public discussions of the Kipnis and Hypatia controversies in multiple venues, there was also a blog where people (no one knows how many, could be 100, could be 10) discussed these issues anonymously, along with gossip and speculation about named people’s sex lives, assaults and assault allegations, job prospects, physical appearance, quality as scholars, etc. And do you know what the Blanchard Bros had the /gall/ to do in this anonymous forum? They came in and posted jokes about ants. Can you believe it? What kinds of monsters are these people?

      1. Dear Ben or Josh: no matter how many times you post this, it still isn’t a correct characterization of the content of this blog.

        1. “it still isn’t a correct characterization of the content of this blog.”
          So true. Other stuff happens on this blog, too!

      2. Right, and I’m sure you’d say the same thing if they posted two dozen inane comments a day at Feminist Philosophers. You wouldn’t say they were being disruptive.
        Believable.

        1. “Right, and I’m sure you’d say the same thing if they posted two dozen inane comments a day at Feminist Philosophers. You wouldn’t say they were being disruptive.
          Believable.”

          We can suppose the author’s a hypocrite for the sake of argument – but yeah, it’s pretty implausible that this is what the stories would be! Also, the description in the story hardly describes the comment threads at FP. Plus, generally the FP authors themselves are only nominally pseudonymous.

  14. Hi guys. Any suggestions as to what can we do about the far-left threat to philosophy, apart from posting comments on this blog?

    1. But haven’t you read people’s replies to the Blanchards? This blog is enormously important and influential. People check it when they are on search committees, they sift through the comments to figure out what’s going on, and they always believe people’s claims about who is who in the comments.

  15. From the Mark Lance comment posted above: “Lance: ”I’ve put quite a few criticisms of the article out publicly. Those criticisms are correct.”

    I didn’t realize that those criticisms are correct, thank you for pointing that out!!!!! Where can I pick up my pitchfork and torch?!

    1. That it’s followed immediately by this is really hilarious: “just announcing that everyone criticizing the paper is wrong, and arguing in bad faith suggests to me that you are not actually competent to be in this discussion”

      1. Not quite fair. A handful of them are semi-non-entities, which is a peg or two higher than total fucking nobodies. One or two of them may even be small potatoes, an even further step up.

      2. Some somebodies there, the one jumping out at me being R.A. Briggs. She’s highly regarded in metaphysics and epistemology. Sad!

  17. I’m curious as to why the usual folks who go in for this bullshit (Jason Stanley, Kate Manne, etc.) are keeping their peace. Still waiting to find just the right bandwagon?

    1. I’ve seen Ersatz-Barnes on FB saying we should step away from the keyboard for a few days. First she encourages online mobs for years, now when it becomes embarrassing she tells us there’s nothing to see here.

      1. Or maybe she makes distinctions between cases, and only supports causes that she thinks have clear merit.

      2. Link? That’s amazing hypocrisy, though no doubt she thinks there’s a “distinction between cases.”

      1. I hate to say it, but much of the comment thread to the ‘Symbolic Conscription’ post at FP is a pretty convincing impersonation of a blob of navel-gazing nitwits. One might have expected some mention of freedom of speech vs claims of harm etc… but it quickly becomes a discussion about the meanings of the epithet ‘Becky’. And it doesn’t stray much from there.

        I’m not saying the topic is inherently unworthy of discussion, but it’s very hard not to read this string of forty comments that don’t mention the screamingly central issue as an extended exercise in (probably largely unconscious) misdirection and displacement. Seriously, go read it.

        Interestingly, the issue is first raised, in comment 8, by one R Kukla, who as a prominent FB cheerleader for the Hypatia apology, which then quickly became the grotesque Hypatia apology clusterfuck with an audience of millions, can easily be imagined to be eager to talk about anything else that comes to hand.

        1. That thread is incredible. Kukla complains that the author of the post seems “almost proud of” her ignorance of the opening dialogue to Sir-Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” This, she says, is “kind of the problem, right?” That song is “a towering, maximally mainstream icon of black culture.”

          A number of things might be said about these remarkable contributions. I’ll cut to the chase: what the fuck?

          1. Haha, brilliant. She and her fellow campaigners might have completely destroyed the career of a young female feminist philosopher for no more serious reason than their recreational righteousness-thrills… but check out the real problem: obviously, white academia’s insufficient familiarity with [cue beats] I like big butts and I can not lie…

            1. I think these fools are trying desperately to get out of the way of the juggernaut their own cynical mob tactics has unleashed. But it’s too late. As with any Jacobin movement, the most ideologically intense are fated to wind up under the blade they have themselves erected.

          2. The assertion that Sir Mix A Lot is an icon of black culture…is precisely what you’d expect from someone who has “mastered the literature” on race but never actually talked to any non-academic black people.

            What’s that now about citing the Lived Xperiences and diverse knowledgeZ of sub-@ltern populations?

            1. Also, let us not allow Prof Manners’ moving subsequent post,’Have Mercy’, to pass without comment:

              Surely there can be more than the comically simplistic presentation of two sides here. The tendency to present these complex systemic (systemic!!!) issues as bifurcating into nameable good guys and bad guys insults us all…. It is possible to feel great concern and humanity for all who have been affected by this. It is possible to see all of the issues raised here as incredibly vexed and radically difficult to address. It is possible not to want anyone involved to suffer more or to be held up to further opprobium.

              Can any human being who claims even the rudiments of a moral sense read these words without finding their finer feelings driven headlong to the very brink of tears?

              OK, enough. Pop quiz: Is this post

              (a) the latest exemplar of a proud FP tradition of refusing steadfastly, in the face of howsoever great a temptation to rhetorical advantage and political point-scoring, to cast complex issues in simplistic, binary, ‘us-vs-them’ terms, instead rising above the fray and awarding their laurel-wreath of moral approbation to the vindicated party, as well as, unfailingly, the golden apple of sympathetic concern and cheerful moral solicitude to those deemed to have succumbed, as all of us from time to time must, to an honest error of moral accounting, without fear, favor, or — least of all — any taint of vulgar ideological allegiance?

              or

              (b) a squalid, opportunistic attempt to divert attention from a paralyzed inability to take what is obviously the only decent course on a matter of clear principle and very serious consequence for a vulnerable female philosopher of precisely the sort it is their avowed mission to fight for — the paralysis having been induced over a long period by ideological toxins they have never cultivated sufficient intellectual honesty to resist, and which have increasingly presented, as symptoms, precisely the polarizing groupthink and irresponsible smearing of perceived enemies they now shamelessly purport to denounce as ‘the comically simplistic presentation of two sides’?

              ‘Twas ever thus. So long as they are riding high on moral self-admiration, the world is starkly Manichean: show me a concern for due process, and I’ll show you a rape apologist! But once they realize, too late, that they have thrown in their lot with a crowd of grubby narcissists and charlatans who are now exacting their pound of flesh, extorting from them a renunciation of the only feminist principles that ever made them worth taking seriously in the first place…. Why, then, it’s just all so complicated, don’t you see? Those crude oppositions — just – unjust, free-speech – censorship, scholarship – power-politics — are inevitably far too blunt to serve as instruments adequate to the infinitely nuanced complexities of the new dispensation.

              Excuse me while I throw up.

              1. I enjoyed reading this. Thanks. Funny how complicated and uncomfortable tend to overlap so perfectly for these people.

              2. A brilliant diatribe, and totally, painfully accurate. I laughed while puking in my own mouth while reading it. (By the way, my vote is for option “B”.)

              3. Well put. You should consider writing publicly in the coming months. The response to these monsters, idiots, and enablers needs voices like yours.

                1. Thanks; this is about as public as I care to be right now. But feel free to share. Also the screed reposted by some kind soul above at 1.50 on May 3 — that was me as well.

  18. Seriously though, why would it be that the only one of the relevant online venues discussing an online mob’s framing, persecution, denunciation and attempted censorship of an untenured woman feminist philosopher for writing a philosophy paper arguing for feminist views, that isn’t framing the whole thing as an obviously horrible injustice against said vulnerable feminist philosopher… is a blog that calls itself Feminist Philosophers?

    I honestly can’t piece together anything that might count as a usable FP response to this from the mass of mealy-mouthed, largely argument-free verbiage generated by Hypatia’s defenders over the last couple of days except:

    Any putative harm done to Tuvel is dwarfed — dwarfed*, I tell you! — by the appalling violence she committed in erasing the identities of those marginalised trans* POCs who are clearly…etc etc.

    But this sort of thing is just so patently absurd that I’m finding it very difficult to believe they’re even seriously pretending think this. Am I missing anything?

    *Sorry Shelly

  19. I would like to know how anyone is able to successfully utter the word “erasing” in that sense with a straight face.

  20. Lisa Guenther’s ‘justification’ for shanking Tuvel (on FB, linked from Leiter). I can’t even.

    I thought these people were against fucking one’s own students? I’m so confused!

    1. A choice comment from her lower down: “It’s been interesting to see how closely liberal and alt-right discourses on free speech align when black (and) trans people’s lives, perspectives, and critical analyses are on the line.” Lisa Guenther needs a remedial critical thinking course.

    2. I think McWhorter’s recent article on campus protests might be worth reading for insight on Guenther.

      Link:http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/05/01/the-know-nothing-campus-protest-movement

      Guenther: “intentions do not determine or reduce impact”….sounds like…wait for it…ideal theory!!!!!

      An aside: in my personal interactions with Charles Mills, I have found him to be affable, humane, and open-minded (though I reject many of his views). I wonder how he’d feel about being used as a club to beat up on a young philosopher.

      1. Good call.
        Agreed, Mills is all class, a rare case these days of a professional philosopher who is a genuine intellectual *and* a public intellectual. And, by the way, McWhorter’s academic work is very interesting, although pretty much unrelated to what he’s writing in the Beast. (That really is just “by the way”.)

  21. Wow, she is hot. Ugly Feminists must be jealous. A beautiful hot philosophy chick wasted by the continental ideology, think about that. So sad.

    1. I know 1:52 is trolling, but there’s surely a grain of truth in his comment. Tuvel is, by ordinary standards, an attractive woman. One has to think that played a role in the tribe’s decision to make her a ritual sacrifice.

  22. I agree that, in some sense, treating a weaker / more vulnerable person unjustly is worse than treating a powerful / less vulnerable person unjustly.

    However, seems to me that many of us may be over-emphasizing the fact that Tuvel is a woman and untenured. Seems to me that there’s a danger of slipping into (or at least suggesting that we’re slipping into) the same kinds of errors that are driving the New Consensus types. The anti-Tuvel campaign would be, in at least some important respects, just as bad (and just as nutty) were it directed against an extremely prominent man ensconced in some fantastically awesome endowed chair.

    I do realize that it’s tempting to emphasize Tuvel’s sex and her untenured status because such hypocrisy by alleged defenders of the powerless is an almost irresistible target…but anyway, just sayin’.

    1. Noted, Stealthy. But it’s also worth emphasizing (and I’m not saying you would disagree with this) that Tuvel’s genuinely vulnerable status makes the smearing significantly worse — and, more importantly, raises interesting questions about why more powerful (or, shall we say, otherwise hard to criticize) people who have said very similar things have not been persecuted in this way. It’s not just the hypocrisy: as usual, the bullies are cowards.

      And I don’t have the sense that people here are implying that it would be remotely OK to go after a less vulnerable person in this way. (Again, I’m pretty sure you don’t disagree with this.)

      1. It’s not that I’m sure that I disagree with any of that…it’s more like I think it’s important to…I dunno…say out loud that, speaking for myself anyway, it’s easy to get distracted by points (true though they are) like: *the bullies are cowards* and *it’s worse to do this to someone untenured than to someone tenured.*

        I’m not unmoved by those considerations… I’m just a lot more concerned about the fact that there’s a kind of mass movement in the humanities–*and even in philosophy itself*–that comes pretty damn close to insisting that it is impermissible to conduct apolitical inquiry purely with the aim of achieving understanding. I’m inclined to say: this is virtually indistinguishable from arguing that philosophy should be abolished. I agree that the bullies are cowards. But, important though that point is, it pales in comparison to what I think is really at stake here.

        Sometimes I feel better just for having said things.

    1. Good for her, and good for philosophy. This discipline could use some sorting out of mere activists from genuine scholars.

  23. More po-faced patrician prudery from Nussbaum. ‘Philosophy does not mock’??? Someone forgot to tell Nietzsche. I wonder whether noted Nietzsche scholar B Leiter will point this out?

    1. The second Guenther post Leiter linked to is even weirder, if anything; a few bits especially deserve comment.

      1. There is apparently no room both to be an intersectional feminist and think the reaction to Tuvel was excessive. Any feminism that would “struggle to figure out what it means to become an effective ally and accomplice of black (and) trans people” must be basically okay with the attack on Tuvel (or at most view it as a regrettable consequence of justified social action); the only alternative is a degenerate racist feminism that “would rather strategically ally itself with cis hetero anti-black patriarchy.”

      (Good luck defending that in print.)

      2. Props to Joachim Horvath for his solid but evidently futile attempts at dialogue.

      3. What the fuck kind of person says “YES. Thank you for this, [so-and-so]” when someone says that worrying about the harm being done to her former thesis student “feels a bit too much like critiques of racial justice movements as mobs throwing bricks through windows.”

      1. Nussbaum’s overrated, sure, but only in the sense that she’s conventionally taken to be a great philosopher when she’s actually just a good-to-very-good philosopher and a great writer.

        I wonder who is the most overrated philosopher alive, though.

        1. Alphabetically, a list of suggestions:

          Korsgaard
          Kripke (he did important work, but not nearly as much–or as important–as his ranking in BL’s polls would suggest)
          McGinn
          Noë (pretty much just a plagiarising blowhard)
          Scruton
          Stanley

    2. Yeah, my immediate reaction was to wish that Nietzsche himself had a chance to take a swing at that bit about philosophy not mocking

    3. Mark Lance with exactly the reaction I expected. They’ll never forget that you were mean to queen B, Martha.

      1. I’m glad he called attention to the Butler paper, though, if only because the end now looks incredibly prescient:

        “The great tragedy in the new feminist theory in America is the loss of a sense of public commitment. In this sense, Butler’s self-involved feminism is extremely American, and it is not surprising that it has caught on here, where successful middle-class people prefer to focus on cultivating the self rather than thinking in a way that helps the material condition of others. Even in America, however, it is possible for theorists to be dedicated to the public good and to achieve something through that effort.

        Many feminists in America are still theorizing in a way that supports material change and responds to the situation of the most oppressed. Increasingly, however, the academic and cultural trend is toward the pessimistic flirtatiousness represented by the theorizing of Butler and her followers. Butlerian feminism is in many ways easier than the old feminism. It tells scores of talented young women that they need not work on changing the law, or feeding the hungry, or assailing power through theory harnessed to material politics. They can do politics in safety of their campuses, remaining on the symbolic level, making subversive gestures at power through speech and gesture. This, the theory says, is pretty much all that is available to us anyway, by way of political action, and isn’t it exciting and sexy?

        In its small way, of course, this is a hopeful politics. It instructs people that they can, right now, without compromising their security, do something bold. But the boldness is entirely gestural, and insofar as Butler’s ideal suggests that these symbolic gestures really are political change, it offers only a false hope. Hungry women are not fed by this, battered women are not sheltered by it, raped women do not find justice in it, gays and lesbians do not achieve legal protections through it.”

        No wonder Mark Lance hates it.

        1. Mmm, mmm, good.
          I have no idea (I mean, literally) whether she’s any good at Aristotle, but I’m glad she’s around.

  24. 318 comments in the DailySnooze thread on Tuvel’s harmful paper.
    have you all guys finished grading? (quite envious)

  25. “Rebecca was an awesome teacher. Really nice and helpful. Very passionate as a teacher, which kept the class engaged. Also very fair as a grader. Everyone in our class loved her.”

    “Wonderful teacher, very engaging throughout the 1.5 hour class period. Assigns a lot of readings, which are absolutely vital to earning a decent grade. Kind and always willing to help. The class was largely discussion based, which made it much more interesting. I definitely recommend taking one of her classes.”

    “She is a wonderful instructor – knows her material, engages great discussions to the students, very approachable. I am no philosophy major, but she made the material so interesting and clear to any of us.”

    “Excellent professor! I’d recommend her by far. The class is beyond stimulating; Professor Tuvel holds wonderful discussions allowing the students to speak a great deal and clarifying along the way in order to make a wonderful class environment. She is also extremely thoughtful in her feedback on papers & more than willing to help a student improve!”

    “Great course. Rebecca is a very helpful instructor and makes boring material really interesting. Her willingness to help her students impressed me. Doesn’t hesitate to help you with papers any other questions you may have. Would recommend taking a course with Rebecca!”

    1. that’s just because she’s white, cis & hot. implicit bias literature shows you this. but you’re not familiar with this, therefore you’re not a scholar

  26. We need Colin McGinn’s perspective also:

    I just returned from a trip to New York in which I gave a paper on consciousness to a conference at Suffolk County Community College (respondent Ed Erwin); attended my friend Gregory Soros’ thirtieth birthday party (on a boat by Chelsea piers, followed by late-night ten-pin bowling); spent time with a brilliant and brave political exile (“John”) from Malaysia at Gregory’s place in Soho (we listened to a lot of Prince songs); had a long and profound dinner with Tom Nagel; and ended with a delightful lunch with George Stephanopoulos. All round a very good trip. The contrast between the people I saw in NY and the people now occupying the philosophy profession (not all of them!) was not lost on me. The business about Tuvel is just the latest in a series of outrages perpetrated by a certain type now distressingly common.

    http://www.colinmcginn.net/new-york/#.WQtlRNqGMuU

      1. McGinn can’t stop, because he isn’t supposed to stop. One of the best philosophers since Wittgenstein was unduly ostracized. He got left empty-handed, and nobody cared about him anymore. McGinn is the philosopher we need and deserve. Hands down! Hand him a job, please. O well, I’m not creative with handjobs.

  27. Rage Machine’s Twitter is always good for a laugh:

    1. I love this one, and helps to explain why no one in epistemology takes her work seriously:

      “But I’ve now given up on fixing philosophical concepts for the sake of ‘truth’ or some abstract bullshit like that.”

  28. Question for people who work in philosophy language/Sellars-Studien: is Lance a serious figure that people actually read/engage with, despite his online tomfoolery?

          1. sure. but Stanley is a big shot. definitely bigger than Lance, no surprise here.
            you haven’t proved yet that Lance is a bad philosopher.

            Anyway, even if Lance has the citations of Aristotle and David Lewis combined, his comments at the Daily Nous show he is an intellectual vacuum. and if intellectually vacuous people are big shots in philosophy, philosophy is dead. therefore, (academic) philosophy is dead.

      1. I dunno, that looks pretty serious. An h of what, 15? (The first one on the list is a Marc Lange book, and *Challenging Moral Particularism* is just a collection with Lance as one of the three editors.)
        It’s true that a lot of the papers are co-authored, is that what makes him seem non-serious?

  29. always off the mark lanceless might be a poor philosopher but it is hilarious how he spreads his legs on social media and mansplains to insufficiently PC women and feminists how Tuvel’s article equals murder.

  30. In the DN thread with over 300 comments, there is only one (by Daniel Kaufman) that calls on the APA to censure the journal, or to do anything at all. Does it surprise anyone that apparently nobody expects our main professional organization to take any action in this case? Call urgent meetings to accommodate the demands of striking hotel workers? Yes. Dole out grants to any project proposal so long as it mentions diversity and inclusion? You bet. Speak out in defense of basic academic values in the field’s journals? Meh.

    At any moment I expect to get an email from Amy Ferrer about fundraising for a video series in which Rebecca Kukla explains how the use of “Becky” as an insult is one of the cornerstones of black culture.

    1. I don’t think I want the APA involved in shit like this — not because I think they’d come in on the wrong side, but because I don’t want to see them enlisted in the struggle at all.
      Also, it’s kind of our fault. We elect at least many of the APA representatives.

  31. From Haslanger at DN:

    ‘Data collected in 2013 suggest that of the 13,000 professional philosophers in the country 55 are Black women. Let that sink in. Of the 55, 30% were Ph.D students; 35% held tenured positions. I don’t have data on the representation of trans scholars, but I would expect there are even fewer.’

    We must not rest until at least 20 – 40% of the profession is trans.

    1. This also seems question-begging against poor Prof. Tuvel. After all, if it’s possible to be transracial, we presumably have no idea how many Black women are in philosophy.

      In fact, it just now strikes me that we should all fervently hope that Prof. Tuvel’s hypothesis is correct. It would allow us to solve the diversity problem in philosophy overnight — we just all need to identify as Black women!

  32. “In short, can we move the conversation away from the particular case of Prof. Tuvel’s paper and talk about how our profession can be more respectful and more innovative, how can we stop alienating and marginalizing those who are legitimately frustrated with the profession, and how we can resist the fear mongering of the current political context and build tools needed for a more just and peaceful society?”

    I guess we can’t at the Daily Nous, because the comments are closed!

    1. Justice Whineberg is shameless in his attempts at providing propaganda masquerading as debate, as usual. These people are nothing on Gobbels.

  33. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Justin Weinberg (formerly WINEberg, for drunkenness on powerplay) for my public attacks on him. I am apologizing because he has now caved to my attacks, as appropriate, with including The Daily Ant on the Heap of Links. All y’all metal bros thought you were pathetic fringes on the disciplinary boundaries – very true but it is now also true that Justin listens and he listens well.
