What Matters to Philosophers?
By S. Matthew Liao

Professor Valerie Tiberius, Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, would like to invite you to participate in a survey on what matters to philosophers:

For a rationale for the survey, please see the message below from Professor Tiberius:

“Dear Colleague,

As chair of a philosophy department at a large state institution (University of Minnesota), I’ve frequently been called upon to defend philosophy and to justify its place in higher education. This has made me reflect on what really is worth preserving, celebrating, or (possibly) changing about our field. To this end I want to solicit the views of my philosophy colleagues in a more systematic way than just asking my Facebook friends, which is what drew me to the project of creating a survey.
