This reddit is intended for practicing philosophers - undergraduate students, graduate students, professors, or researchers.

Persons with academic training outside of philosophy are welcome.

AcademicPhilosophy is actively moderated.

Much like an academic journal maintains policies about what it will publish, we have editorial standards we seek to maintain.

This is covered in detail in the sidebar.

A subreddit for the discussion of political philosophies and theories from the likes of Aristotle, Machiavelli, Locke, Hume, Kant, Burke, Thoreau, Nietzsche, Rawls, and Arendt. Or for just talking, seriously, about politics, i.e. respectable in-depth discussion, don't vote someone down simply because you disagree.

Treat this subreddit as though the people that you are talking with are gathered in the same room with you.

Marxism encompasses an economic theory, a sociological theory, a philosophical method and a revolutionary view of social change.

Welcome!

/r/radicalChristianity has emerged as a community of people discussing the intersection of philosophy, theology, critical theory, and revolutionary politics. We are interested in re-investing Christianity with its transgressive elements, and as such we are openly against oppressive discourses (sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia).

We invite you to participate!
