Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I believe that the ideas of philosophers both past and present, as well as the skills learned by doing philosophy with excellence, can help build good individual lives and better communities.
