Experiments in Philosophy

The impact of psychological research on life's big questions.

Experimental Philosophy Month

Philosophers band together to run philosophical experiments

XMonthIf you had to name two things that philosophers are not usually known for, they might be (a) running experimental studies and (b) getting along and working together.

But this month, the world of philosophy is challenging both of these stereotypes by working together to run experimental studies.

Twenty-nine philosophers have coordinated their efforts to put together a single website that features 17 different philosophical experiments.

So please help them out by going to the Experiment Month Website to fill out a questionnaire and by spreading the word about this new project!
