Flash Philosophy: Cutting-Edge Philosophy in Bite-Sized Pieces w/ M.G. Piety
M.G. Piety, professor of philosophy at Drexel University, visits The Stoa to discuss an exciting new approach of philosophizing: flash philosophy.

“The term “flash philosophy” is based on the term “flash fiction” which is used to refer to very short short stories. There is growing interest in very short works of philosophy, which are sometimes also referred to as “philosophical shorts” because they are more in keeping with the digital age than traditional philosophical articles which can take many months, or even years, to write and sometimes an equally long time before they appear in print. Flash philosophy can be drafter much more quickly and the insights it contains disseminated much more quickly as well, hence enhancing the productivity of philosophical discourse, but among professional philosophers and among those outside the discipline.”
