Hi Matt,

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 fill out your profile with as many key words that relate to your interests so that other members with similar interests can easily find you and network with you. 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.

 You might consider starting an affinity group that is specifically for ethics bowls, or perhaps one that is geared towards philosophy for children more generally. It is very likely that there are other members who would appreciate your leadership with respect to creating an affinity group, and your expertise in these areas would also be helpful for starting conversations. (And you can find other members with whom you can begin networking by typing "philosophy for children" in the search box on the member page.)

Thanks again for joining the network! We look forward to your participation and contributions!
