Information on the Series:

Everyday Lifestyle Series This series offers a professional exploration of how philosophy intersects with the routine aspects of our lives. With articles on topics such as food, vacation, and hobbies, it aims to shed light on the underlying philosophical considerations inherent in everyday activities, providing a nuanced perspective on the ordinary. 

Ethical Dilemmas in Philosophy Series offers an insightful and philosophical examination of contemporary ethical dilemmas with the goal of reflecting on what philosophy can do to help us understand the moral complexities of our present. Recent articles have explored trans issues, artificial intelligence, and science fiction.
