Welcome to the subreddit for the study of the history of ideas, including the histories of philosophy, of literature and the arts, of the natural and social sciences, of religion, and of political thought!
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.
Welcome to /r/literature, a community for deeper discussions of plays, poetry, short stories, and novels. Discussions of literary criticism, literary history, literary theory, and critical theory are also welcome--strongly encouraged, even.
Marxism is a growing/changing economic/sociopolitical worldview and method of socioeconomic inquiry based upon a materialist interpretation of historical development, a dialectical view of social change, and an analysis of class-relations within society and their application in the analysis and critique of the development of capitalism. Marxism encompasses an economic theory, a sociological theory, a philosophical method and a revolutionary view of social change.
A subreddit for discussion of early Judaism and Christianity - with a focus on Biblical texts, but also related noncanonical literature (Enoch, the Dead Sea Scrolls, etc.) - in a scholarly context. Relevant topics might include general exegetical issues, ancient languages and translation, the study of the historical Jesus, textual criticism, reception history of early Jewish/Christian literature, etc.
/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!
