is an influential Leftist professor, with a presence in both philosophy and law, who is noted for writing a blog which is exceedingly abusive of conservatives. Because of his perceived influence, however, few conservatives say anything in reply to him. They deem it unsafe for their careers.
Keith Burgess-Jackson is the notable exception, however. He is a philosophy professor with a background in law and has an entire blog devoted to exposing the low standard of argumentation used by Leiter. See here
Until recently, Keith had his anti-Leiter blog on blogspot but the last blogspot meltdown caused him to move his blog to his new site at PowerBlogs. Perhaps a little unwisely, Keith deleted his former blogspot blog in the process.
Another conservative blogger has however just taken over the blogspot address that Keith left unused and has posted there another substantial body of volleys at Leiter. See here
The war may be hotting up! Because of all Keith's past good work, the new blog is immediately the no. 1 result returned by a search for "Brian Leiter". Handy. It will be amusing to see if and how Leiter reacts to the new blog. Keith is OK about it.
