Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
Economics has become a discipline whose singular response to policy problems is to encourage resolution through production. It is now pressing ever harder on the academy itself to produce more socially relevant (read: financially profitable) knowledge.

However, the overproduction of disciplinized knowledge in every field has failed to alleviate worsening socio-ecological crises. In the midst of these crises, I believe philosophers need to define their social relevance through the practice of public philosophy or risk economists defining it for them. That is the crux of my interest in public philosophy.
