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. If you have not done so already, please upload a photo and flesh out 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. It is also very helpful to add searchable keywords in the interest section of your profile so that others with similar philosophical interests can easily find you.

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.

Please browse the affinity groups to find ones of interest.  

And feel free to start your own affinity group, in which case we ask you to also join the affinity group for affinity group leaders for tips on how to develop a successful group.

 

Thanks for adding a photo to your profile.

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