  • I’m excited to introduce the newest co-author to Philosophy Matters, Doctor JustHeath. His diverse background in the biological sciences, psychology and counseling makes him a wonderful addition to our collaborative community at Philosophy Matters. I’ve also had the opportunity to see how much fun he can bring to the educational environment, as perhaps my favorite memory of JustHeath is the light-hearted rivalry between two of our past classes, which culminated with an epic silly string battle. JustHeath has already been contributing his thoughts and ideas for interesting posts to the site for many months, and as a fellow Doctor Who enthusiast, I’m confident that this Doctor will […]

  • I’m excited to introduce the newest author at Philosophy Matters, Swalters! He brings with him a wealth of knowledge about all things language, and in addition to being widely read (and watched… does that work, here? I should ask Swalters), he has one of the best memories of anyone I’ve met. To this day, I have only discovered one thing I remembered that he didn’t, although I’ve now forgotten what that was. In all seriousness, I’ve had hours upon hours of discussions with Swalters ranging from philosophy to literature to pop culture and everything in between, and he’s always been […]

  • In an effort to move closer to my ultimate vision of what Philosophy Matters will become, I am in the process of bringing on two new co-authors that I believe will strengthen the community and energize the conversations we are able to have here. An important part of this vision includes discussing philosophy in an interdisciplinary way that strives to approach topics from multiple perspectives. Today I am excited to welcome our science expert, who uses the nom de plume LKAwesome, as a new co-author for Philosophy Matters!   LKAwesome has a B.S in Entomology and an M.A. in Education.

  • About the Site I decided to start this site because I’m passionate about philosophy and I believe that in today’s world it has a bit of PR problem. Many people still see it as an esoteric discipline, full of ivory tower observations that don’t relate to daily life. While it is certainly possible to make philosophy into that, it hasn’t always been that, and it doesn’t have to be today. Philosophy translates to mean love of wisdom, and at its base, wisdom is about taking actions. It acts int he background to guide all of our actions. So for me, […]
