Introduction: Philosophy Through Personal Narrative

Abstract

From its inception in 1993, the Society for Philosophy in the Contemporary World has encouraged philosophy "done at the borders." It has encouraged "high-risk," experimental philosophy—exploratory philosophy that, via adventuresome thinking and writing, might suggest new ways and means to deal with problems in contemporary life. Hence, first among the statements concerning the society's mission is this: "We invite original, creative, and unconventional thinking. We encourage submissions for our conference and our journal … that cross disciplinary boundaries or represent new departures."
