This excerpt contains a comprehensive list of linked philosophical research references with comments regarding their quality.
I am curating two Lists on X to convey a current picture of research, thought, and teaching:
a) Wellbeing and Happiness List (600 member maximum). Scholars, institutions, and students in sciences focusing on human thriving and enjoyment;
b) Normative Philosophy List (1000 member maximum). Scholars, institutions, and students in sciences focusing on the study and application of individual and societal human principles. The scope expands traditional definitions limited to logic or ethics to include virtue, moral, social, legal, and political philosophy and other sciences dealing with standards in artificial intelligence, healthcare, education, economy, environment, planning, and architecture.
Interested parties may follow the Lists and direct-message me to request becoming, or to suggest, a new member of a List.
a) Constituent Accounts. "Philosophy Twitter" is a term of art referring to the combination of philosophy professionals on two Twitter/X Lists: “Philosophers on Twitter”, limited to a maximum of 4500 active accounts, and “Philosophers”, restricted to accounts surpassing 1000 followers and currently including over 1200 individuals.
b) Study and Article. In 2022, I conducted a 6-month study of philosophy professionals' conduct on Twitter and wrote a summarizing article about it, titled Social Philosophy: A Phenomenology and Critique of Philosophy Twitter (25 p., PDF). See also PhilPapers, and an audio version (1:52:10) on YouTube. The study has since been extended to include subsequent developments. An updated version of the summary will issue upon completion.
