Public Philosophy Network

Encouraging and Supporting Publicly Engaged Philosophical Research and Practices


Public Philosophy Journal

The Public Philosophy Journal is designed to re-envision the relationship between the academy and everyday life by creating a public space for accessible but rigorous scholarly discourse on challenging contemporary issues of public concern.

The Public Philosophy Journal is a collaborative endeavor between the Department of Philosophy and the Humanities in a Digital Age initiative at the Pennsylvania State University, and Matrix: The Center for Humane Arts, Letters, and Social Sciences Online and the Department of Philosophy at Michigan State University.

Our intent is to create a journal that will perform public philosophy as its mode of publication.

It's a big day for the @PubPhilJ:

Thanks to all who have helped make this happen, and we look forward to continuing this important work together.

I would be interested in curating, Chris.

Thanks, Eric. Are you going to be at the Public Philosophy Conference at Emory in March? If so, let's touch base about the PPJ. If not, let's connect virtually to see how you might like to be involved.

Good luck with the Mellon proposal! Sounds like an exciting venture.
