World Philosophy Day 2013

'Philosophy' skin care: not actually philosophy at all
Today is World Philosophy Day -- a day to celebrate thinking well, thinking boldly, and thinking oddly (but with precision and a certain panache). 

If you're new to philosophy, here are some helpful thinkers, communicators and teachers to look up:

- Stephen Law
- Nigel Warburton
- Mark Vernon
- Mark Rowlands
- Rani Lill Anjum
- Alain de Botton
- John Armstrong
- Russell Blackford
- Kylie Sturgess
- Michelle Sowey (Philosophy for Kids)

And here are a handful of my own columns (hundreds more here):

- World Philosophy Day (ABC)
- critical thinking for teachers (ABC)
- David Hume and ideas (ABC)
- philosophy as a contact sport (The Australian)
- how to have a bad argument (The Sydney Morning Herald)
- fiction and philosophy (Meanjin)
