The Pandemic Armchair Philosophy Blog
Ecosphere Studies partner, Bill Vitek, creator of the Pandemic Armchair Philosophy Blog, writes that it “…was born in the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic, and is designed to demonstrate philosophy’s practical side in these challenging times. It encourages readers–and not just professional philosophers–to utilize the hard-wired human propensities to think, imagine and create. It’s of the armchair variety because we are urged to stay inside these days, and because philosophizing can be done while sitting down.”
Bill Vitek is a philosopher, educator, author and musician.
