Introduction Brent Silby received his Masters Degree in Philosophy at the University of Canterbury and currently teaches the subject at Ao Tawhiti Unlimited in Christchurch City, New Zealand. He has published papers in various journals and Philosophy magazines, and has also self published a wide range of articles of Philosophical interest. Brent’s goal is to open Philosophy to a wide audience, hence much of his work can be described as “Cafe Philosophy” – interesting, highly accessible articles pitched at intelligent people with no specific background in Philosophy. Brent is on the executive committee of NZAPT (New Zealand Association for Philosophy Teachers), and is working with colleagues to raise the status of Philosophy teaching in Secondary Schools.
