The First CONTRARIWISE Interview

Last May, Mark Balawender, communications director for PLATO (Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization), interviewed the CONTRARIWISE co-editors-in-chief and two contributors. His wonderful piece was published today on the PLATO website.

CONTRARIWISE is my school’s philosophy journal. The inaugural issue, released last February, received a lovely review from Cynthia Haven. The second issue will feature an international contest!

    Love this idea! Congratulations to your students and you — making the leap from participating in a philosophical discussion to orchestrating one is exactly what any teacher would hope for.

    • Thank you, Carl! The editors-in-chief are now getting ready for the second issue. There will be an international contest and two national contests. Announcements are coming soon.
