I was just reading the bit of Gibbard's Thinking How to Live where he talks extensively about the good and the desirable—specifically, about its being a conceptual truth that they are one in the same. I know that this is a common line people take, and I'm curious how many of you agree with it, because I'm not entirely convinced.

Ben Eggleston and I are putting the final touches on the manuscript for The Cambridge Companion to Utilitarianism, forthcoming from... well, you know. Now that most of the writing and editing is done, we're facing the real hurdle to getting a book published... the marketing questionnaire. One question on this questionnaire asks about courses/modules in which the volume might be used. I'm writing to ask if any SOUPers can volunteer names and numbers of undergraduate or graduate courses/modules at their universities in which this volume might be assigned in full or in part, as either a required or a recommended reading.
The next phase of PEA Soup is here. As
of this announcement, Dan Boisvert, Doug Portmore, and Josh Glasgow are
stepping down from their posts as co-editors of PEA Soup with Dave
Shoemaker. Going forward, the blog will be run by Dave Shoemaker and
Those of us stepping down want to take this chance to thank everyone--contributors, commentators, participants in the
Ethics-at-PEA-Soup discussions, and everyone else who is part of
the PEA Soup family--for making the blog such a great place. This June
will kick off the tenth year of its existence, and when we started so
many years ago, the four of us couldn't have
predicted that such a wonderful community would take root here. We are
thrilled that this blog has become a valuable site for those working in
ethics and cognate areas.
We are also grateful to Shoemaker and Sobel for taking things over from here, and we look forward to the next era at PEA Soup.
