Award winning Jazz Flutist Mark Weinstein plays World Jazz and Straight-Ahead with world-class musicians rooted in the music of Cuba, Brazil, Africa, Argentina and his Jewish heritage. A Latin Jazz innovator, Mark was among the first jazz musicians to record with traditional Cuban rhythm sections in an epic album, Cuban Roots, released in 1967 with Chick Corea on piano. He also has a Ph.D. in philosophy and is a professor of Education at Montclair State University, in New Jersey. His music is the soundtrack to Why? Radio. You can learn more about him at www.jazzfluteweinstein.com 
Stay after the recording for a live concert, as Mark joins the Balkansi Klezmer Band for a jazz-infused exploration of the classic Jewish folk music, Klezmer. Balkansi is an ensemble based in Grand Forks that specializes in traditional music from one of the richest and most diverse musical regions in the world. The members of the band include Tamara Auer on violin, Haley Ellis on clarinet, Edward Morris on guitar, Zephaniah Pearlstein on cello, Michael Ferrick on bass, Rachel Agan Muniz on percussion.

And then stay even longer for an informal Q&A with Why? Radio host, Jack Russell Weinstein. 🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼

What is Philosophy?

Archives

I am pleased to announce the publication of the new issue of the journal Essays in Philosophy. I guest edited it and, not surprisingly, it is about public philosophy. The journal is free and all the articles are available online as PDFs.

The issue is, as far as I know, the first extended academic look at public philosophy as a sub-discipline and contains theoretical and practical discussions. Most of the pieces will be more suited to those with more academic sensibilities, but none of the articles are too difficult for general readers. I encourage you all to take a look and see if anything interests you.

Readers of this blog will no doubt be interested in the two pieces I wrote, a short introduction to the issue and a full-length article.

Here are the direct link to download your copy:

“Public Philosophy: Introduction”

“What Does Public Philosophy Do? (Hint: It Does Not Make Better Citizens)”

There is, of course, much more, so please take a look at the table of contents and download whatever interests you.
