Our faculty have been quoted, interviewed, and published in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Houston Chronicle, The Atlantic, the Boston Review, the New Statesman, Ha‘aretz, the London Times, and in many other places. Clear and critical thinking has never been more relevant than it is today, and philosophers recognize that they have a responsibility to speak to concerns relevant to a wider public beyond the academy.
Public policy, for instance, always has moral implications. Money, financial markets, welfare, or taxation raise issues of justice, equality, and the good. We can only speak about human rights and civil rights once we have understood what it means to have a right and what democracy should be. Our responses to natural disasters and climate change, to medical procedures, death, sexuality, love, race, gender, and many other areas all raise deeply philosophical concerns.
