What is it like to do philosophy in public? As prelude to our ep. 125 appearance at the Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Network Conference on theory and public space, Mark, Seth, Wes, and Dylan sat down for questions by moderator Erica Freeman, conference host Justin Pearl, conference presenters Jeremy Northup and Jonathan Wurtz, Not School luminary Marilyn Lawrence, our editor and sound guy Aaron Watson, and other attendees.
How do we pick our topics? What does academia think of us (so far as we can tell)? How do we apply philosophy to our daily lives? What's the future of philosophy (or rather, how do we wildly speculate when asked such a question)? When we philosophize for pennies on street corners, do the police make us stop? Only by listening will your training be complete.
