The poop in philosophy

Presidential candidates are not the only ones who are behaving badly this year. Over the summer, at least four philosophers have received feces in the mail, BuzzFeedreports. What the four philosophers have in common is that they have all been critical of the University of Chicago’s Brian Leiter, the proprietor of the prominent Leiter Reports philosophy blog (and Leiter Law School Reports). Leiter denies any involvement and cites details about the packages suggesting that someone was trying to frame or embarrass him (such as listing the University of Chicago Law School’s address for returns). This seems right, as whoever sent the packages was quite ham-handed in their efforts to connect them to Leiter.
