The fourteenth edition of SHARE magazine was published against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic. The magazine SHARE felt it would be most appropriate at this moment in time to obtain some philosophical viewpoints on how philosophy can help humanity in this time of crisis. We thank all the fourteen contributors who kindly offered to share with us their valuable insights. This was indeed a novel feature of SHARE magazine and something that will be pursued in future editions.
Another interesting feature of the magazine is the interview that was conducted with English psychologist and writer Philip Carr Gomm. Philip was scheduled to deliver a talk in October 2020 on ‘Embodied Awareness and Sense of Self’ but this had to be postponed to an undetermined date in 2021 due to the Covid-19 measures.
There are other interesting articles on blasphemy , the order of chaos and the philosophy behind martial arts. The magazine also covers two recent publications – Easeful death by Marta Obiols Fornell and Philosophy of Law by Silvio Meli.
Finally the magazine SHARE launched in this issue an experimental project to stimulate discussion on a manifesto that can address certain public policy areas from a philosophical perspective. The Foundation believes that philosophy can be effective if it contributes certain thinking on how we ought to live and organise our societies on economic, political and social terms. We are always delighted to receive any comments and feedback.
