Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My research and publications have been in the area of environmental ethics, with a special focus on ethics in the built environment. This focus, combined with a generally pragmatist (and existentialist!) outlook and the fact that I work in an interdisciplinary program, draws me to public philosophy.
