created in 2008
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.
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.
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!
For questions about the theory of anarchism, anarchist movements, opinions on certain situations or current events, or even socialist or communist theory in general. No question is too basic (or advanced!) to ask, so don't be shy :)
Anarchism is a social movement that seeks liberation from oppressive systems of control including but not limited to the state, capitalism, racism, sexism, speciesism, and religion. Anarchists advocate a self-managed, classless, stateless society without borders, bosses, or rulers where everyone takes collective responsibility for the health and prosperity of themselves and the environment.
Specifically, geopolitics is focused on the relationship between politics and territory. Through geopolitics we attempt to analyze and predict the actions and decisions of nations, or other forms of political power, by means of their geographical characteristics and location in the world.
In a broader sense, geopolitics studies the general relations between countries on a global scale. Here we analyse local events in terms of the bigger, global picture.
Welcome to /r/Anarcho_Capitalism, a place to discuss free market capitalist anarchism and related topics, and share things that would be of interest to Anarcho-Capitalists.
