The Daily Philosophy Magazine for August 2022 is out and available on Kindle and as a PDF file for subscribers! Get it on Amazon!
You can find all the past issues of the Kindle Magazine on the Daily Philosophy Magazine on Kindle page.
Welcome once more to our monthly philosophy magazine, the August edition! As always, this edition contains all articles, including the premium ones, that were published on the Daily Philosophy newsletter over the past month.
If you like what you see here, please also consider subscribing to the weekly newsletter for more exciting articles and discussions, some of which are exclusive to the newsletter:
This month, we have a number of fascinating articles in the DP Magazine:
A summary of the main arguments in the ethics of abortion. If you ever wondered whether the pro-life or pro-choice advocates are morally right, this is the article for you!
A defence of Artificial Intelligence writing assistants. In the July edition of this magazine, we had an article on Jasper.ai, a new AI writing companion. Often, such programs are perceived as threats to the writing professions. Who needs journalists, essayists and book authors if an AI can generate a perfectly usable article on any topic in seconds? In this article, though, which has been thoroughly hand-written, we’ll try to see if there is anything positive about such writing assistants. Might it be that they have a role to play in the writing economy?
In “How Free is Free Enough?” we take on free speech, based on an article by Ronald Dworkin. How much free speech do we really need, and is free speech always a good thing?
Last in this issue, but certainly not least, is a brilliant explanation of Kant’s concept of “categories” by philosopher John Shand, which uses the technology of a weather-station (a so-called “Stevenson-screen”) to illustrate what Kant meant.
You can read all these articles online, some for free, and some only with a premium subscription to Daily Philosophy. But the Kindle edition, at the price of a cup of coffee, brings you all the articles (including the premium ones) in a beautiful Kindle ebook that you can take along with you and read offline, in the bathtub, while hiking, or on the beach. You also get to support Daily Philosophy, so it’s good karma 🙂
If you like the magazine, you may want to also check out the Daily Philosophy books page, where you can buy the whole series of “Daily Philosophy Guides to Happiness.” It’s right here:
If you are a premium subscriber, you can get both the book and the DP magazine for free (an 7.98 USD value). If not, you can subscribe right here to get all future books for free:
