Thinking in the Open
Philosophers Rebekah Rice, Patrick McDonald, Leland Saunders, and Matthew Benton (including members of the undergraduate Philosophy Cadre) will reflect together on the tendency of philosophers to want to expose their work-in-progress to the most powerful critiques available, even before publication, and, as they do so, communicate a sense of what it is like to write for and publish within such a sharing but critical culture.
