The Internet and Young Philosophers

I’ve always thought of the internet as a fantastic place to ‘do’ philosophy. There is such a wide audience and the net is such a versatile tool to deliver information in a variety of formats. This week the SUNY Philosophy Dept. announced a new initiative for ‘Young Philosophers’, and it involves the internet.

The blurb on the site reads:

“Starting with the Spring 2008 semester, the SUNY Fredonia philosophy department will invite young philosophers (persons who have recently received their Ph.D. in philosophy) to give campus talks. Each young philosopher we invite will deliver one research presentation and one introductory-style presentation geared toward an audience with absolutely no background in philosophy. Our current plan is to invite two speakers each semester. If funding for this project increases, then we’ll invite more. The process for invitation will be competitive.”

The best part – it will all be podcast.
