Why we started making Philosophy simpler.

As a Philosophy student at University, one of the most common questions I get asked by Non-Philosophers is:

“What exactly is Philosophy?”

Philosophy is a dying subject, yet it remains important for so many reasons.

It asks a of key questions about the universe which are both fascinating and have key It elicits debate on discussions of Morality, Metaphysics, Discussions on God, Ancient Philosophy, Consciousness, Analytical and Continental Philosophy and so much more.

Meaning it allows you to evaluate what current Politicians are saying, and decide for yourself whether it’s Philosophical bullshit (Frankfurt, 2005).

It’s for these reasons, and so many more that we became fascinated by key Philosophical questions about life,

But the reason Philosophy isn’t widely followed is because, for outsiders, it’s extremely Most of the time, Academic Philosophy doesn’t make much sense.

And trust me, I’ve been there. At the age of 16, I spent days reading Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, and didn’t understand a single word.

We aim to change that.

Philosophy often has barrier’s of understanding imposed: requiring contextual knowledge, the ability to read and decipher thousands of complex pages, or an understanding of jargon to make sense of, benefit from, or engage with it.

And we agree, this part of Philosophy

So let’s make a deal.

We promise our articles will never feature more than 1500 words — and we will never assume a prior understanding of context or jargon.

Instead, we will only ever publish content that is easily accessible and straightforward — whilst also maintaining the core practical value Philosophy has.

We do this so that anyone can understand and benefit from Philosophy — regardless of age, background, or experience.

And we do so with the hopes of inspiring those less knowledgeable in the realms of Philosophy to engage in discussions and to come to conclusions on key questions about life.

Sound like a deal? Ok cool, hop on over to our articles for a closer look.

I’ll see you on the other side for some insightful debate.
