Philosophy Matters aims to show the relevance of philosophy to modern life through engaging and and enjoyable activities; to instill a love of wisdom that can serve as a guiding light of critical thinking as we attempt to understand ourselves and the world around us; to show that philosophy matters most in the areas of our lives that are most important to us.

The organization was founded by J.J. Sylvia IV, a graduate of Mississippi State University and The University of  Southern Mississippi.
