This reddit is intended for practicing academic philosophers - undergraduate students, graduate students, teachers, and researchers. This is your home for academic shop-talk.
Persons without training in academic philosophy are welcome to join in the discussions, but you are advised to check with the moderators before posting.
This is an effortful reddit; laziness is the only barrier you need to overcome to participate.
Academic Philosophy operates according to editorial guidelines.
Ask yourself, Would this be appropriate to discuss in a university classroom or faculty lounge?
- Links to articles of merit and substance, including from the popular press, that directly engage with a philosophical issue or concern the philosophical academic community
- Civility: personal attacks and links to personal attacks are not acceptable; comments should be thoughtful and polite.
- Point to specific texts (i.e. don't only introduce something like the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy but select articles of relevance for discussion). Add a comment to explain why you think it is important.
- Self-authored reviewed (i.e. published or forthcoming) papers welcome!
- Self-posts are generally discouraged. (All submissions should be framed as contributions not questions/requests for purely personal advice.)
- Multi-part submissions or follow ups should be posted within the original thread.
- Announcements - e.g. CFPs, AMAs, surveys - should be cleared with the mods before posting. Only those of general interest to this community and/or suitable for a discussion thread will be permitted. (Most conference announcements will not pass this test.)
