This is a mini wiki for those who have a love for philosophy. A proposal for Wikicity of Philosophy has been made at Porposed wikis. The following is the a survey of what the proposed wikicity would be used for.


An explaination of the goals should be made:

  • introduce historical philsophers and explain the basics of what they were trying to communicate within their works.
  • maintain a list of suggested reading that would help everybody stay on the same page so to speak.
  • facilitate discussions of various ideas and propositions that users might have.

How about a list of common philosophy mistakes? — Danielwang-x 01:50, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't quite follow... Could you elaborate or give an example? --Robert Harrison 10:48, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Well, since I don't think that there are any common mistakes, that list would be highly subjective. I rather want to suggest (still working on the general outline to guide visitors and future contributors) that all pages can (and shall) be commented on. If a certain idea or concept leads to "common" misinterpretations or to contradictorious interpretations, these should be mentioned - and explained! (I personally don't want to read stuff like Oh, there he got it totally wrong! - either talking about a well-known writer or an unknown wiki-user - but rather a good argument that includes all possible meaningful interpretations. The reader should in the end be able to make his or her own judgment!) JM.Beaubourg 17:17, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)
