Katheryn Doran.

Associate Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran recently posted a blog on American Philosophical Association's Current Events in Public Philosophy. In "Phronêsis, or, a Plea for Critical Thinking," Doran gives a critical account of what  philosophers do in the classroom – and its many uses beyond the classroom, from the narrowly practical to the profoundly transformative  – and closes with a detailed example of how the skills are applied. 

The American Philosophical Association promotes the discipline and profession of philosophy, both within the academy and in the public arena. The APA supports the professional development of philosophers at all levels and works to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the value of philosophical inquiry.
