Nature, don't think I won't cut you

When I learned about the recent collection Carving nature at its joints: Natural kinds in metaphysics and science, I had to change the title of my forthcoming book. After much discussion here, on other blogs, and on Google+, and after some back and forth with the publisher, my book will be Scientific enquiry and natural kinds: From planets to mallards. (A better title, I think. So the rigamarole was worth it.)
I learned about the Carving collection when I was asked to review it for Notre Dame Philosophy Reviews. I love open-access journals in general and NDPR in particular, so I was glad to do it. My [strike]hatchet job[/strike] review has now been published over on the NDPR site.
