About the Messenger

At Socratus, we think collective wisdom is the way to solve (or is it dissolve) wicked problems. Sometimes we do that by turning problems of the world into problems of the mind in the world. Sometimes we do that by creating tools that help us make those problems visceral and transparent. Sometimes we evoke collective wisdom in spaces such as wicked sprints and citizens juries.

Throughout our efforts, we bring an attitude we call philosopher’s depth to our work, in which philosophy returns to its roots as the love of wisdom. For us, philosophy is not a specialized, academic way of studying the world, but a universal, creative and practical way of changing the world.

The Messenger is where we share our explorations with the world; it combines discussion of wicked problems, tools for wisdom and space creation along with our thoughts on the work of others similar to us.
