My social media activity regularly includes X, Facebook, and Instagram, and occasionally TikTok.

 

A screenshot of Martin's Twitter/X Profile, depicting a portait of Martin and a lineup of his books.My contributions focus on public philosophy, and in particular my mission of assisting people  in  exploring, developing, and implementing their own philosophy. I am sharing thoughts about two intimately connected aspects of human-centered philosophy: a) Normative Philosophy, the study and application of individual and societal human principles, and b) the Philosophy of Happiness, which deals with the optimization of human existence and thriving. Together, these subjects constitute my main fields of work. A special interest in this respect is how machine capacitation, including artificial intelligence, affects human norms, welfare, and survival.

 

I also post about Metaphilosophy, the philosophy of philosophy, and criticize institutional philosophy for its vices, lack of productivity, and failure to engage the public.

 

I try to complement, and in some cases emphasize, the seriousness of these topics with a lighter side. So satire, sarcasm, and other banter are not out of the question.

 

And all this is interspersed with a curated series of philosophical luminary quotes, as well as philosophical quotes and poems from my books in the Knowing series, and a few new ones as they come to mind. Look for the emblems below, identifying excerpts from each of the six books:
