"What is going on with PPN and with this site? I had not visited this site for many months because it appeared to be inactive, but I recently received an email announcing the 2018 PPN conference."

Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I am dissatisfied with the increasing exploitation of part-time faculty coupled with rising costs for students. I am interested in non-institutional alternatives to higher education, especially in the humanities.

My research interests include the application of Aristotelian practical philosophy to post-industrial society.

Hi, Michael!

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 encourage you to fill out your profile page with keywords so that others can find you through a simple search on the Members page. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects, as well.

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.
