Philosophy can help people to think more clearly and critically about important moral, social, and political issues, and I hence believe that philosophers have a special responsibility to work to achieve a broader presence of philosophy in public life.
I try to do my part by giving lectures to the public, working with high school students (e.g., as an Ethics Bowl coach and judge), and engaging with the media.
I have been interviewed in newspapers, and on radio and TV, and my op-eds and other articles on a wide range of issues of public importance have been published in print and online newspapers in Australia, Bangladesh, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
A common theme of much of my op-ed writing is the importance of individual freedom.
