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 stems from my study of Hannah Arendt. Specifically, her emphasis on the importance of creating and sustaining a vibrant public sphere in which human speech and action can flourish and make contributions to the wider human community.
