Ordinary Philosophy is a blog and podcast by Amy Cools that is dedicated to the intersections of philosophy and daily life. Cools studied philosophy at Sacramento State University and is currently pursuing a M.Sc. in intellectual history at the University of Edinburgh. Ordinary Philosophy is comprised of four sections. In the history of ideas section, Cools writes about influential thinkers of all stripes, often on the anniversary of their birthday. These tributes are all fully cited and accompanied by suggestions for additional reading. In the philosophy section, visitors may browse previous blog posts by categories such as reviews & recommendations, science, and ethics and morals. The most recent blog posts, authored by Cools and guest bloggers, are available on the site's homepage. Meanwhile, in the traveling philosophy/history of ideas section, Cools describes her travels to sites that were central to the lives of a variety of thinkers and philosophers. Finally, podcast fans can listen to current and past episodes of the Ordinary Philosophy podcast (available via Podomatic and Google Play) in the podcast section.
