Wikibooks[edit]

Actually the page was imported from Wikibooks for good. But I think the following Wikibooks users would still be interested in conversation. So, if you like contact them on Wikibooks and invite them here, ok ? ----Erkan Yilmaz (my talk page, wiki blog) 10:07, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

publunch[edit]

Well, my nick is publunch and my home page is here. I studied philosophy at The Open University, and at Birkbeck College which is part of the University of London, and at the University of Sussex, all based in England. The Open University pioneered 'distance learning', and I found that worked for me. Birkbeck College is a college specialising in part-time and evening education, while the University of Sussex is a more conventional university. I think I can get quite enthusiastic about the Wikiversity as a new venture bringing learning to places it would not otherwise reach, pioneering in the same kind of way as The Open University has done.

After leaving Sussex University, I had a nervous breakdown from which I have not yet fully recovered, and perhaps helping make Wikiversity happen will help me regain some kind of confidence. As nobody expects me to do paid work at the moment, I may have time to help make Wikiversity happen.

I think I can help at a junior faculty sort of level in making courses in logic and philosophy of mind happen, but I know I can't do all the work myself.

Alex_beta[edit]

My name is Alex beta, and I write things every once in a while at Logic, Philosophy and other Musings. I am afraid I know very little about Wikimedia projects, but I can hopefully contribute to the contents in the School of Philosophy and the School of Physics.

John Doyle[edit]

Hello. I am John Doyle, and have an interest in Bioethics. I invite contributions to the Bioethics section. By way of background, I am an academic anesthesiologist. In 2004 I received a graduate certificate in bioethics from Cleveland State University. For more information visit [this page].

Tim McNamara[edit]

Howdy, I am an Honours student at Victoria University of Wellington. [1]. I am more than happy to attempt to answer any questions, or lead people in the right direction. I hope to add content in the coming months, but at the moment I am trying to tidy the Philosophy School up, and making it navicable. Cheers! --Abc123 12:10, 28 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Killedthecat[edit]

Hello to all in wikiland, I'm new to the wiki experience, but I do think that this is a great idea, and I have a passion for philosophy, particularly the later Wittgenstein and a smattering of Continental thinkers (Derrida, Deleuze and Heidegger being my current favorites). I'm currently studying philosophy at undergraduate level, and I will try to impart some of what I have learned so far over the coming months.

Lucidish[edit]

Greets, wiksters. I started out as an artist and sci-fi writer, and didn't come into philosophy until I had read Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder. Something in it lit a fire under my butt. Now I'm an undergrad at the University of Western Ontario, almost finished an honors BA. Afterwards I plan to go into journalism.

Timothy J Scriven[edit]

Hey. I am 17 years old and hence have no formal degrees. Nevertheless Philosophy is a subject which has consumed most of my spare time for the last four years now. I am going to construct a broad readings course based on "The classics" ( the critique of pure reason, the blue and brown books etc). I also plan to create a philosophy of mind and a philosophy of religion course. I also "work" at the department of liteature where I've created a course on T.S Eliot. When I get a bit of time I plan to do a "Philosophy and poetry" course which I will run at both the English department and here. I believe Wikiversity is important for a simple reason, knowledge is the death of tyranny.

Michael Molitor[edit]

Hey, Wikipedians! My name's Michael. Like the nifty guy above me I'm 17 years old and therefore have nothing with which to prove my credibility to all of you wonderful people involved here. My username is TheoryWIZ (I also enjoy music theory, if you couldn't extrapolate that one), and I'm pretty new to Wikipedia in general, so please forgive me if I need some help starting out. Although in about four days I will officially have course credits worth half a semester for a philosophy class I am enrolled in and currently hold an A- average (wish me luck on my final). I guess it must be weird to have a high school student in a philosophy class but my school provides it, so I jumped on the opportunity as soon as I could. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to helping build this project with all of you. Unfortunately, my free time is extremely limited as a junior involved in APs and theatre (technical crew) among other things, so my contributions may be a bit limited until I can get back on solid ground. I would really like to work specifically in the fields of free will and Existentialism, for I was really moved by my studies of those topics. I was also thinking about a philosophy in music course, which is something that both my teacher and I feel is overlooked at times. Anyway I look forward to working with you all!

Spock of Vulcan[edit]

Hi! I'm Spock of Vulcan. I have a B.C.Sc. (Bachelor of Computer Science), with a minor in philosophy. Ethics is the area of philosophy with which I have the most experience. Feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. I stop by every day so I'll always respond! :) Spock of Vulcan 23:40, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
