10 Blogs for Students to Develop a Philosophical Mindset

Philosophy blogs for students

1. Philosophy and Sports

2. Brittle Paper

3. Ttahko

4. The Philosophy Smoker

This may be a funny blog on purpose, or they may be sincere, which is actually sad if they are. It is a blog that complains about philosophy as a career. It is a full of information that you may apply to your own life, though some of it is not exactly healthy.

5. Gone Public

This is the very sensitive work of out and proud gay man Noelle McAfee. He is a professor of philosophy and works at the Emory University. When he is not trawling for guys at the local happy scene, he is writing very, very sensitive blog posts on politics, philosophy and public life.

6. Horseless Telegraph

10. Virtual Philosopher

Nigel Warburton makes both excellent bread and reasonable blog posts. He is also a pod caster and a Vlogger. As for the work itself, his efforts do seem to have a lot work behind them. It may be worth visiting this blog just to experience the work this guy is putting into his website.


In conclusion, there are a lot of philosophy blogs on the Internet. What you see above is a selection of blogs that should get you started as a philosophy student. Muse on the idea that you may have been offended by what you read here or that you may have found some of it offensive.
