Many difficult and divisive issues confront us today: the global pandemic, growing inequality, racism, a distrust of science and many others. How can we begin to address these?

Taking a philosophical approach gives us ways to think about these issues and provides us with effective techniques and approaches to start a dialogue.

Many journal articles are already providing important research on these questions. Here is a selection of exciting new research papers that are leading the discussion and showcasing the latest views in philosophy. This collection of widely read articles is free to share and read.
