>>>I can think of a very labour-intensive change -- a project to raise
awareness of the importance of philosophy, and what constitutes a
philosophical issue, and that there are academic sources devoted to
dealing with them. But that's a project that would need academic
philosophers to create it. And it would be a contentious project at
times, because we'd be trying to claim back certain topics from other
hands -- from scientists, for example.
How do we attract the philosophers back once they've gone almost
entirely? I don't know.
How about some of the ideas I suggested earlier? Starting with a keynote
statement from Jimbo, followed by some initiatives? Preferably in the
media, and preferably with some modest support from WMF. Views?
