The book is published by Pearson Asia (that’s a story in itself) and will be available in paperback by mid-August. They’ve been bringing out nice, inexpensive draft versions for my students in Singapore (that’s why I have an Asian publisher.) For this first general release I insisted on extending the deal I had insisted on for my own classroom use: I reserve the e-rights and so have a free hand to try manner of cool free e-stuff. I’m hoping one reward for my virtuous ways will be that some folks will want to adopt the book for classroom use. (Free e-availability is a big pedagogic bonus, I think.) And will then see to it that copies of the book are in school bookstores, so Pearson (and I) get paid a little. That seems fair.
You can check out the free online version here. I hope more philosophers start to do this sort of thing -- or, better yet, write unrestrictedly open-access textbooks.
For a striking contrast, I just noticed that Springer is trying to charge $100 for the Kindle version of a 'Time and Ethics' anthology. I wonder who they're thinking will pay that? (At least they have university libraries as a captive market for the $150 print edition.) Am I missing something? It'd seem far more sensible to lower the e-book price and maybe actually sell a couple of copies.
For the rest of us, it'd be even more sensible to just share our papers online (you do want to be read, right?), and do away with commercial anthologies altogether.
