Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My interests in public philosophy are multiple: I am interested in the role of the "public intellectual," especially as it manifests in the notoriously anti-intellectual public space of the United States. I am also interested in more publicly engaged teaching -- developing applied learning courses, teaching students from the perspective of philosophy as a tool for living and not just an academic subject, community outreach, etc.

Hi George,

Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)!  An introductory User Guide can be found under the “About” tab. We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests. While we welcome all members interested in public philosophy, the particular aim of this site is to help develop and support collaborative projects that include philosophers as partners in research and/or social action projects that in some way contribute a public good and/or further public discussion and deliberation. 

As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. We strongly encourage you to upload a photo on your profile pages and to complete your profile so that other members with similar interests can network with you.  You can manage privacy settings to control who has access to your page and who sends you e-mail by clicking “Settings” and then “Privacy” in the box under your name at the top-right side of your profile.

Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects. There are two ways to become actively involved on the PPN on-line network:  1) The affinity groups provide members with the opportunity to collaborate around a particular issue within public philosophy; 2) The general forums on the main page are intended to foster “metadiscussions” on issues in public philosophy that cut across specific issues—these discussions may focus on practical or philosophical concerns. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start an affinity group or add a thread to a general discussion forum. 

Your input may be valuable in a couple of discussion threads that have been started about how to do philosophy more publicly. You can browse some of them here:

You may also be interested in joining the new affinity group that is dedicated to Public Discussion Groups.

Thanks again for joining the PPN! We look forward to your contribution to the network.
