In this 63rd episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast, Eric Thomas Weber and Anthony Cashio interview Dr. Mark Sanders on “Democracy and Public Exposure.” We ask Mark about democracy and public philosophical engagement, including some of the special projects that he runs in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Mark specializes in American Pragmatism and social and political philosophy. He is very involved on campus; he is a Faculty Associate with the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics and the Faculty Co-Advisor of the Philosophy Club. Mark has recently written and published articles in Human Affairs and the Review Journal for Political Philosophy. The focus of his recent work has been on the intersection of deliberative democracy, pragmatic pluralism, and citizenship. Mark also has interests in phenomenology especially the views of French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty.
