Aaron Wendland from the Higher School of Economics, Moscow, recently launched a popular philosophy column in the New Statesman. The column aims to provide a space for publicly-minded academics to address contemporary social, cultural, and political issues from a philosophical point of view.
So far, pieces by Martha Nussbaum, Jeff McMahan, Judith Butler, and Tim Williamson have been published. In the upcoming weeks, there will be articles by Simon Blackburn, Wendy Brown, Sally Haslanger, and Peter Singer.
To give you a sense of what the new column is all about, here is a link to the inaugural article of Aaron: https://www.newstatesman.com/2019/01/philosophy-must-be-dragged-out-ivory-tower-and-marketplace-ideas
