Wi-Phi's mission is to use the internet to introduce people to the practice of philosophy. To this end we make videos we hope to be entertaining, easily available, and accessible to people with no background in the subject. Our aim is for people to learn how to do philosophy, rather than for them to simply learn what philosophers have thought. We want to develop the critical thinking skills that are core to the methodology of philosophy. We see this as a part of a larger mission: building our collective capacity to engage in rational thought and discourse. By providing the toolkit for building better minds, we hope that Wi-Phi plays some small role in realizing that goal.
