    If you're a Cogtweeto fan, you know what it means to study philosophy. But what does it mean to *teach* it? We're partnering with The American Association of Philosophy Teachers to find out! Join us for talks, panels, teaching & public philosophy demos, "pro-tips", and a "Teaching Hub" with AAPT!

mission


Cogtweeto ("I tweet therefore I am") Workshops is a free, fully-virtual workshop initiative developed to promote open and constructive engagement with contemporary philosophical research.

Inspired by and originally built for "Philosophy Twitter," Cogtweeto 
invites all members of the online philosophy community—students, professors, independent scholars, and Twitter lurkers alike—to enrich their philosophical engagement with one another in an open and low-stakes way. Our aim is to bring the standards and conversations of academic philosophy beyond its walls, leaving the barriers of those walls behind. 

To create a
new, radically more accessible space for philosophy
