Welcome Message From the Channel Owner

# Philosophy is an Undernet IRC channel maintained as a forum for people interested in civil discussion of philosophical ideas. It is visited by people from both hemispheres of the world who are drawn to observing or participating in philosophical discourse and debate. Our channel-ideal is that # Philosophy be a reliable place in cyber-space where these diverse people's expectations for civil philosophical conversation are met.

# Philosophy exists more for amateur philosophers than for professionals. Professional philosophers may indulge their proclivity for philosophical discourse among their academic peers. However, for people outside academe, it is rare to find a circle of acquaintances who share the desire to explore the mysteries of existence. There are many people who are thus frustrated by a lack of means for conversing with others of like mind. # Philosophy often provides that means.

Please click the Channel Guidelines link for policies pertaining to conduct in # Philosophy. Comments and suggestions may be conveyed to me by email ( skept_cm@yahoo.com ) or via /msg Skept when in the philosophy channel. All messages are logged and yours will be given due consideration.
