 Don't get me wrong, Rutgers has an amazing phil programme, just uber-analytic.  Half the faculty may be actual brains-in-vats.  Stich, Goldman, Fodor, Lepore were all there at one time, maybe still.  Stich actually may have started doing more new stuff like x-phil.

what's "x-phil?" the over-analytic is something i cannot take seriously. disembodied heads miss the point of living

 x-phil = experimental philosophy




very cool new "wave" combining cog-sci, neuro-imaging, phil-psych, etc.  Heavy implications for ethics especially imho.  Take a look at Joshua Knobe and Joshua Green, Jesse Prinz, Shawn Nichols.  If I did grad school all over, I would do x-phil.

By the way, Habermas is a visiting professor at Northwestern. Dietz is the editor of political theory and he is on the board as well.
