Yesterday we shared 34 selections of the OUPblog’s best work as judged by sharp editorial eyes and author favorites.

Do these articles simply “pop” (and promptly deflate)? Or are there certain questions to which people always demand an answer?
We’re kicking off the new year with a retrospective on our previous one. What was drawing readers to the OUPblog in 2014? Apparently, a passion for philosophy and a passion for lists. Here’s our top posts published in the last year, in descending order, as judged by the total number of pageviews they attracted.
