The blog is primarily intended as a forum for the discussion of philosophical ideas. We will also use the blog to publicise philosophy events taking place in Turkey and to discuss the history of philosophy in Turkey. We are open to diverse ways of doing philosophy and thus invite philosophers from all philosophical traditions join the discussions that take place in the blog.
