Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My interest in public philosophy stems from two central beliefs: (1) that sound thinking can enable human flourishing and (2) that the practice of philosophy enables us to work towards clarity on what the terms in the first proposition amount to, with everything, of course, up for revision.
I am currently a member of the Canadian Philosophical Association's Philosophy in the Schools Committee, a co-founder of a national undergraduate paper prize, a public school teacher and an aspiring graduate student. My research interests involve the relationship between the value of philosophy as a practice and conceptions of cosmopolitanism in political philosophy and the philosophy of education.
