This page was originally static content on my website. I have incorporated it into my blog, entry dated the last time it was edited, as a more appropriate place to archive old things like this. The Debate List no longer exists.

The Debate List

I operate a mailing list where participants discuss various philosophically-grounded subjects such as politics, law, physics and maths. It is open for anyone to pitch in and the only real requirement is that participants behave in a highly civil manner. For more information, please visit this page.

IRC channel

##philosophy on the freenode IRC network is a IRC channel/chat room for the discussion of philosophical issues and related subjects such as maths, physics, politics etc., although it can be argued that all academic studies are decended from it in some way. We encourage you to join us and welcome anyone who would like to have a discussion about some aspect of reality and our lives.

We request that users follow freenode’s channel guidelines whilst making use of the channel in order to keep it a useful resource for everyone to enjoy. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask inside the channel or contact seanw by using the contact page. Thank you for visiting.

If you would like to obtain a hostmask cloak then please ask seanw on IRC for authorisation. If you’ve been hanging around in our channel for a little while we can furnish you with about/philosophy/yournick rather than freenode’s default of unaffiliated/yournick, which is a secure way to protect your IP.
