Thanks!

Great idea for a new group, Daniel--am happy to join.

Group members might be interested in an article that I co-wrote with Ellen Feder:
Sharon M. Meagher and Ellen K. Feder (2010) "The Troubled History of Philosophy and Deliberative Democracy," Journal of Public Deliberation: Vol. 6: No. 1, Article 6.
http://services.bepress.com/jpd/vol6/iss1/art6

The article includes some discussion of teaching issues at the end.
