Simon Blackburn is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. He was Edna J. Doury Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina, and from 1969 to 1990 was a Fellow and Tutor at Pembroke College, Oxford. He is the author of The Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy and the best-selling Think and Being Good, among other books.
Stick with Blackburn's Think, and his Dictionary of Philosophy. This one collects some of his professional publications. As with most philosophy publications, nothing is really said, If you mean X by Y, then I respond with Z, but no one sticks to a single thesis, or one that matters. Hedging throughout. Nothing ventured.
