I wrote a Manifesto for Public Philosophy, up now at Daily Nous. "Good philosophy needs to be everywhere, accessible to every level, to anybody who might be interested. We need to flood the world with gateways of every shape and size."
"It’s war, the soul of humanity is at stake, and the discipline that has been in isolation training for 2000 years for this very moment is too busy pointing out tiny errors in each other’s technique to actually join the fight." #philosophy

The thing is, if you do a certain kind of public philosophy successfully, it becomes irrelevant what philosophers think of you. Fundamentally, philosophy is a tiny little pond.
"[T]he problem right now is that if you don’t have any training and you go online looking for #philosophy you can actually understand, 9 out of 10 things you’ll find are from the hate-web": #ethics #internet #highered h/t
Cool piece by at . Re the suggestion for supporting public phil initiatives, here’s a few things to check out if you’ve not already done so....
A great post, and I’m thrilled to see it rounding. What’s needed is expansive role for philosophy. We are careful thinkers, and this is what’s needed in public settings. My academic pubs are few, but my impact especially with #meded and illness is great.
Interesting essay on public philosophy by . Not sure I agree with everything here (what's the "hate web"? am I part of it?), but the first bit of the first item on his list is certainly something I have gained an appreciation of over time.
On the many forms public philosophy takes and the still great need for support of this work in our departments and universities
"The world is in crisis. It’s war, the soul of humanity is at stake, and the discipline that has been in isolation training for 2000 years for this very moment is too busy pointing out tiny errors in each other’s technique to actually join the fight"
I have dipped my toe into public philosophy and liked it! I found radio-ing very scary but rewarding. So yay the personal recs especially the charity. But I like the institutional recs. the point about journals clarifying their policy seems easy and good.

+ 's public philosophy manifesto. Here's a personal observation. I'm thrilled my tech-ethics & privacy op-eds spark lots of conversation. And yet, philosophers rarely pay attention, while editors balk when I submit a "philosophical" draft.
I couldn’t agree more with this excellent manifesto for public philosophy by . Public philosophy is vital, and it’s really bloody hard to do it well (I know because I’ve tried). It needs full-bore institutional support.
This "manifesto for public philosophy" is, to me at least, a good reminder of why Philosophy in the US is very different from Philosophy outside the US, where public philosophy is seemingly everywhere...
