Brief Blog Reviews Digest

At the roughly-half-way point in the year, it seems a good time to put links for the reviews all in one place.

To reiterate: these blogs are sites I commend to your attention for being (1) dependably well-written and responsibly thought, (2) likely to stay in business, (3) frequently updated, and (4) blogs I have hitherto not yet cited in my other posts. This last point explains why such excellent blogs as Love of All Wisdom, Siris, or Footnotes2Plato have not been included, despite satisfying points (1), (2), and (3), not to mention being blogs about philosophy (like this one, nominally).

I'll add links to this list as the year progresses, Insha'Allah.

January: Just Thomism
February: Glory to God for All Things
March: Isola di Rifiuti
April: The Duck of Minerva
May: RateYourMusic
June: Noir Realism
July: not Light of a Golden Day, alas,
but Star Slate Codex
August: Meaningness
September: Poems and Poetics
October: The Talmud Blog
November: Disinformation
December: Smitten Kitchen
plus a recap.


  1. Thank you, Skholiast. I enjoy your reviews, which made me discover several new blogs or at least have an idea of what was going on in them. And these summaries are also very reader-friendly.

  2. Thanks, Elisa. My aim has been partly to just point to the background conversation that can informs thinking. As is clear, it is not always overtly about "philosophy" in the narrow sense. I of course also mean to provide only appreciative, thumbs-up, reviews. I am glad you find them helpful. And accessible!
