IPN Blog Guidelines

The blog at IPN is a platform for philosophers and others to write about philosophy in India and also to express philosophically informed opinions. 

What kind of articles are published in the IPN blog?


Philosophy for Society and Public – Articles that explore the questions and events of society from philosophical viewpoints.


Life of philosophy and philosophers in India – Articles that explore and document the experiences of philosophers and the nature of philosophy – as a discipline/practice/profession – in India. 

Academic Philosophy – Articles that introduce (either to fellow academicians or the public) a specific topic in Philosophy. We publish brief, accessible summaries by researchers about their latest publications for wider dissemination. The articles can also be reviews of philosophy books.
