Many thanks to the BPPA
Many thanks to the British Postgraduate Philosophical Association for hosting my talk yesterday on "The Application of Philosophy to the Public Sphere" co-sponsored by the Society for Applied Philosophy. Topics addressed included: academic jobs for philosophers outside philosophy departments, non-academic careers, and creating "impact" through social media, traditional media (news op-eds, radio), and working with politicians and public policy networks (think tanks, etc). Some excellent questions and delighted to see real enthusiasm for the topic!
