Thanks for this post. The most charitable reading of Leiter's position is probably this: we shouldn't try to disentangle quality judgments from academic politics, because that's not possible, and if we try politics is likely to take an even bigger share of the pie. I think that's right, but I'm not sure it would be such a bad thing. We'd have a trade-off between maximising the impact of quality judgments vs maximising the visibility of political factors in quality judgments. My limited confidence in short term philosophical quality judgments makes me lean towards the latter option.
