I would usually comment here about an issue of a journal coming out only if it contained some epistemology that I wanted to draw to people’s attention. But I’m making an exception, because the Philosophical Review is my favorite philosophy journal, and there was reason to worry that it had ceased to exist: The last time an issue had come out was 16 months ago, and that last one was the Janurary 2004 issue, so PR was about 2 years behind schedule. But the April 2004 issue was in my mailbox when I got in to work this morning.
And now that I’ve just looked up the journal’s web page to link to it, I see that they are planning to come out with quite a few more issues in the very near future, which will essentially bring them up to date: see this publication schedule. So the journal appears to be not only still alive, but perhaps alive and well. (Though I’m not sure what I think about the part about PR soon to be “sporting a redesigned cover in Cornell red.” Those light blue (sky blue, perhaps?) covers go way back, don’t they? Couldn’t Cornell University just change their school color to “Phil Review blue,” and accomplish the match that way?)
Update 3/8/06: We’re well into March now, and I haven’t received or seen either of the two issues that were supposed to be still coming out in February, so Fritz (see his comment below) seems to have been right to be suspicious about the publication schedule. Meanwhile, Matt Weiner reports that he just received a copyedited version of his paper, “Must We Know What We Say,” which he is supposed to correct. Matt’s paper is supposed to be in one of the issues that’s to come out this month, according to the schedule. So, on the bright side, it looks like these issues are coming along. But it’s looking quite doubtful that they’ll all be out by the end of this month.
