Philosophical Gourmet Report – Breakdown of Programs by Specialties 2011

The rankings of programs in the specialty areas are based on surveys by experts in those specialties.  Because, in many cases, the ratings reflect the presence of only one or two faculty in a department, the Advisory Board decided that we would not publish the precise scores.  Programs are placed in “groupings” based on the rounded mean (rounded to the nearest .5).  Next to each grouping, you will find the rounded mean for that group; next to the name of each program within that group you will find the median score for that faculty in parentheses, and then the mode score:  where the mode and median are higher or lower than the mean, it is probably safe to assume that there was some notable divergence of opinion among evaluators.  (Where there was more than one mode, only the average of the two is listed, to simplify the presentation.)  Within a grouping, programs are listed alphabetically.  Only programs with a rounded mean of “3” (meaning “Good”) or higher are so grouped.   (In order to increase the pool of faculties a student should consider, any school with a mean of 2.5 or higher and either a median or mode of 3 was also rounded up to “3” and listed.)

The Advisory Board has added to the specialty rankings two categories of programs.  Faculties ranked in prior years, but not included in the 2011 survey, are marked with an #.  Faculties not rated previously, but deemed by the Board strong in an area, are marked with an *.

The purpose of the specialty rankings is to identify programs in particular fields that a student should investigate for himself or herself.  Because of the relatively small number of raters in each specialization, students are urged not to assign much weight at all to small differences (e.g., being in Group 2 versus Group 3).   More evaluators in the pool might well have resulted in changes of .5 in rounded mean in either direction; this is especially likely where the median score is either above or below the norm for the grouping.  Also bear in mind that (1) programs with more faculty specializing in an area tended to be rated more highly than those with just one philosopher in the field; and (2) programs with specialists on the regular full-time faculty rather than “cognates” or part-time faculty tend to be rated more highly in the field. 

The lines between the specialty categories are not always hard-and-fast.  What one philosopher might call an issue in philosophy of language, another might call an issue in philosophical logic or philosophy of mind.  Students might look at the useful Blackwell Companions to Philosophy, or the equally valuable (albeit less detailed) Oxford volumes (ed. Grayling) on Philosophy:  A Guide Through the Subject, to get some sense of how the fields are customarily demarcated.

It is worth noting that the results were checked for evidence of strategic voting; there was none.  Evaluators were admirably responsible and honest in their assessments, and there were fairly high levels of consensus on the strengths of the faculties among the evaluators who completed the surveys.

In the specialty rankings below, note the following symbols:

*inserted by Board
#based on  results from prior years, in some cases with modest adjustments by the Advisory Board to reflect changes in staff in the interim

Results are grouped into four broad areas, reflecting conventional demaracations:  “Metaphysics and Epistemology”; “Philosophy of the Sciences and Mathematics”; “Theory of Value”; “History of Philosophy”.

Subsequent to the surveys being completed, we learned of a couple of possibly relevant faculty moves.  Stephen Menn (ancient, medieval and early modern [17th-century] philosophy) was listed as full-time with McGill University in the surveys, but is now almost three-quarters time at the Humboldt University in Berlin, and roughly half-time at McGill (different academic calendars in Canada and Germany make that possible).  Peter Adamson (Arabic philosophy, also ancient and medieval philosophy) was listed with King’s College, London, but is moving in 2012 to Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich.  (KCL still has two established scholars in ancient philosophy, M.M. McCabe and Raphael Woolf). Finally, Paul Guyer, a leading Kant specialist at the University of Pennsylvania, announced he would be moving to Brown University. This would have a significant impact on both the specialty rankings for Kant and the overall rankings for both Penn and Brown.

Remember: evaluators were not permitted to evaluate either their own department or the department from which they received their highest degree (PhD, DPhil, sometimes the BPhil).
