Philosophy Accessible to All.


The Institute for Philosophy in Public Life bridges the gap between academic philosophy and the general public. We cultivate discussions between professional philosophers and those with an interest in the subject, regardless of their experience or credentials.

IPPL is founded on the premise that anyone can do philosophy, and we recognize that philosophy relates to our day-to-day lives. Philosophical communities are fun, fulfilling, and essential for democracy.


Why? Radio and IPPL needs your help more than ever; we get no money from the University of North Dakota.

And really, if you won’t support philosophy, who will?

Every guest on Why? Radio and every person who works with IPPL donates his or her time. This keeps our costs low and means that everyone associated with our programs is happy to be doing what they can for us. Your contribution goes a long, long way.

Thank you! We appreciate your generosity!
