Kevin: Welcome! the general forum is intended to be a place specifically where all of us can engage in a philosophical dialogue about what public philosophy is. The site is organized so that members can pursue both particular questions that engage them (and the public) as well as questions that cut across issues, questions about the very nature of our work.
