a philosophaster dabbles. sometimes we sound serious, other times not so much. sometimes we sound like hacks -- that's what it takes to be a philosophaster.


our goal is to make philosophical, scientific and artistic ideas part of the common discourse. our podcast and articles are about making connections. it is essential to present ideas and people that reach across diverse and often fragmented disciplines; we focus on scholarship and art that builds bridges and resists the push towards specialization, while at the same time not skating around complexity and subtlety of thought.

we work in a variety of mediums, because well, quite simply, ideas come in many forms, not just academic papers. this site is not committed to any particular subject matter, but simply the praxis of philosophizing, wherever that may take us, and in whatever form.
