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 philosophy is based in its practical benefits to self and society: to better understand ourselves and our world and to create and maintain an enriching living environment for all. I believe public philosophy has the ability to accomplish this if done well.
One of my favorite quotes: "My purpose is to exhibit philosophy as an integral part of social and political life: not as the isolated speculations of remarkable individuals..." ~Bertrand Russell

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 strongly encourage you to upload a photo on your profile page and to complete your profile so that other members with similar interests can network with you. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects.
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.
