Not Much Love Among Philosophers

 Stephen Downes led me to this interesting dust up. Apparently Clark Glymour, a philosopher at Carnegie Mellon who can actually be "taken seriously" by computer (and other) scientists was offended that his dep't got a low ranking in a recent academic ratings game and hit back with a polemic "manifesto" belittleing some other branches of his subject (though in my opinion perhaps not too unfairly - except perhaps for the associations with Hitler, Stalin, and  Pol Pot!).
