Here at Ordinary Philosophy, we love public dialogue and applying the philosophical approach to everything from solving everyday problems to exploring our innermost selves. How do we find personal meaning? What does it mean to know, and what can we know? What is beauty? What are the connections and conflicts between the individual and society, between personal rights and interpersonal responsibilities, and how do we relate to one another?

Here, we explore all manner of topics of abiding human concern, from Bioethics, Education, Ethics & Morals, Feminism, Freethought, Human Rights, Justice, Language, Metaphysics, Money, Philosophy, Politics, Religion, Science, Sex & Sexuality, and much more. You’ll find essays on these and many other topics by selecting from the categories listed under ‘Categories’ to the right. May your explorations be fruitful and interesting and remember, we always love to hear from you.
