MN-263963-19

Squire Family Foundation (East Northport, NY 11731-0540)
Gaurav Vazirani (Project Director: June 2018 to present)
Wireless Philosophy

Production of one hundred short animated videos dealing with a variety of topics in philosophy.

Wireless Philosophy has developed a novel form of engagement with the public by creating short, entertaining educational videos on philosophical issues ranging from logic and critical thinking to ethics and philosophy of religion. Our videos feature professional philosophers at 40+ international academic institutions, are widely distributed through YouTube and Khan Academy, and are heavily discussed on a variety of social media platforms. Our aim is to provide a broad, general audience of learners with free access to introductory-level discussions of philosophical issues, presented in a digestible and accessible format, but nonetheless informed by experts and scholarship. This application requests funds to produce and distribute new interactive digital modules (interactive learning pathways containing not only videos, but also supplementary educational materials) aimed at bringing philosophy to life for the public.
