Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy studies


Four philosophy scholars from the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy at the University of Maryland, and three more from other US academies explore the making of a citizen, how citizens are to agree and disagree, and citizens and service. Citizen here means not a legal relationship to a state, but membership in civic society. Several of the seven essays appeared in Philosophy and Public Policy, published by the Institute.
