PhilosopherDAO is exploring web3 ethics with the goal of funding philosophy outside of academia.
This will help web3 communities evolve into ethical crypto societies.
In the long run, PhilosopherDAO will:
👁🗨 We believe a philosophical approach can open up new social, political, and environmental perspectives.
🔭 We believe philosophers can explore the intersection of ancient wisdom and internet culture.
🗳 We want to explore new ethics of participation.
⚪️ We want to explore the philosophy of decentralized virtual worlds.
🔮 And do what philosophers do best: Contemplate about where we should or shouldn't go.
Philosophers were the first mathematicians, astronomers, and scientists. They've been responsible for many discoveries. They attempted to reason about ethics and about how a society should be governed. In ancient Greece, they pioneered direct democracy.
Academia funds philosophy for academics. Philosophical texts shouldn't be bloated and hard to read. They should be practical and accessible. Accessible not only in the sense that they should be free but also in how easy they can be understood.
Philosophers used to be tinkerers. They used to participate in forums and sometimes even governed nations. Nowadays, they're left writing obscure texts and have lost touch with practical matters.
