Bad Philosopher is an independent digital magazine. We publish content that explores the intersection of existential risks, the future of civilization, and what it means to be human in this rapidly changing world. Our mission is to bring profound and exciting ideas to the forefront of our collective consciousness.

We’re dedicated to sparking conversation on complex topics in an accessible way. While we lean heavily on concepts from philosophy in order to delve deeper into an issue, our goal is to make sure readers have the resources they need to follow along and pursue self-directed study on any of the topics we cover.

The pursuit of wisdom is about exploring new depths and gaining new understanding. Being a bad philosopher means not being afraid to dive down the rabbit hole, being able to boldly follow a new idea or perspective wherever it leads, and being willing to say “I don’t know” when the truth is elusive.
