Barefoot Philosophers, in association with Gnowledge lab of Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE, TIFR, Mumbai), is happy to announce the start of Barefoot Chat: a web-based public discussion platform for philosophy and humanities.

As a part of this, weekly interactive sessions – facilitated by subject experts – will also be organised. 

Who can Join? 

Anyone interested in philosophical exploration is welcome to become a member of this forum. No prior acquaintance or knowledge of philosophy is required. 

When does this start?
Barefoot Chat was launched on 3 October at 3 pm with a webinar discussion led by Dr Sundar Sarukkai and other members of Barefoot Philosophers team on the topic “What do we see?”

For more information and readings for the upcoming sessions, go here:

We at Barefoot Philosophers are looking responses to the question, What does Philosophy mean to you? What do you think it is and what does it entail for you? Let us know…    

We are underway a unique process to have a public discussion and debate around this often confusing question. The final responses will be published on to create a platform for discussion.    

Responses could vary from a line to about 300 words and should be mailed to with the subject line – What does philosophy mean to me.
