Our Mission

Philosophy is a living part of our shared heritage, and we believe that everyone should have access to it. The questions that philosophy addresses are questions that everyone has struggled, or will struggle, with at some point in their lives concerning what to do, what to believe, and what to value. The methods that philosophy offers for addressing these questions are relevant to all of our projects–whether it’s choosing a career, figuring out how to treat others, evaluating public policies, or evaluating claims on the basis of evidence.  Madison Public Philosophy’s mission is to share philosophy with all members of the Madison, WI, community through educational programs and public performances.
