Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I'm interested in philosophy in part because I find it helpful and I find that it can sometimes offer useful answers to pressing questions. The kinds of answers I have in mind - regarding the nature of the self, of self-control, of moral responsibility, regarding ways to make society more just, regarding healthy ways to think, to approach others, and more - are as useful to everyone as to folks in philosophy classes or grad programs. The trick is communicating the issues and their importance, as well as keying on other issues which life in the academy might obscure. Thus, public philosophy.
