What Our APA Berry Fund for Public Philosophy Grant Helped Fund in the Helena Community in 2023


We are grateful by the support shown to us in 2023 by the American Philosophical Association Berry Fund for Public Philosophy!  Because of their $1,000 award, we were able to launch a new series called “How Did We Get here?” (as part of our philosophy shorts program) inspired by an interest to provide deep, shorter-in-length activities for people to participate in and our belief that there is a lot to be gained by exploring the history of ideas. 

Money from our Berry Fund for Public Philosophy grant was used to help cover costs related to program implementation & logistics, archive resource creation, and guest scholar honoraria for our “How Did We Get Here?” series.

The American Philosophical Association was “founded in 1900 to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers, and to represent philosophy as a discipline.”  Their mission concerns promoting “the discipline and profession of philosophy, both within the academy and in the public arena” and their principal activities include: scholarship, teaching, career development, and advocacy.

The Berry Fund for Public Philosophy “supports the work of the APA committee on public philosophy, whose goal is to find and create opportunities to demonstrate the personal value and social usefulness of philosophy.”  Thank you so much to the American Philosophical Association and the Berry Fund for Public Philosophy! Your $1,000 grant helped us support philosophy in the community for people of all ages and backgrounds!
