Welcome all[edit]

Welcome to WikiProject Philosophy. A WikiProject is a group of pages in the "Wikipedia" article namespace which are devoted to the management of a specific topic or family of topics within Wikipedia; and, simultaneously, a group of editors who use those pages to collaborate on encyclopedic work. It is not a place to write encyclopedia articles directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organize the writing and editing of those articles. This group focuses on articles in the broad field of Philosophy.

Getting started[edit]

There are a few things you can do right now to get started helping the project.
  • Add ((User WP Philosophy)) to your user page. It will automatically add you to Category:WikiProject Philosophy members. You may also choose to place the Philosophy navigation banner on your user page as well by adding ((Philosophy/Nav)).
  • Join one or more task forces and repeat the preceding steps for each.
