About the author

Forum for Philosophy

Forum for Philosophy is a non-profit organization promoting philosophy. We host events, produce podcasts, and publish an essay series to showcase the work of contemporary academic philosophers from all philosophical traditions, often in conversation with each other and with academics from other disciplines. In all of our activities, we promote thought-provoking discussion of science, art, and politics from a philosophical perspective.
