Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My interest in public philosophy derives from the intersections of philosophy, sociology and urban planning, which are the three disciplines it which I work. Public philosophy focus the issues of civic engagement, public dialogue, and participatory democracy that are at the core of my professional and academic work.
Greetings from the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)! In addition to filling out your personal page so that others can gain a sense of your work and interests, we hope that you can take some time to explore the various features that the PPN has to offer. The PPN is a great place to publicize your own research, but it is also intended to provide spaces for collaboration, communication, and mentorship among its members. Since the success of the PPN depends on its members, please be creative and test out ways to promote about practice of public philosophy. Thanks for being a part of the PPN! We also hope that you’ll join us at our in-person conference to be held Oct. 6-8, 2011 in Washington, DC. Please note the details on the PPN website.
