Philosophers from Poverty


The announcement of the UPDirectory has prompted a number of comments about a category not included among its underrepresented groups: philosophers who grew up in poverty. One theme in many of these comments is a sense of isolation and difference that comes from having that kind of background. The point of this post is just to open up a space for philosophers to discuss this issue, their experiences, suggestions, and so on, related to being a philosopher from a background of low socio-economic status.
