Online Philosophy – Some Pedagogical Lessons and Good Practices of the Occurrences of Practical Philosophy on the Web

In the following article the occurrence of practical philosophy online is explored. With the help of authors such as Rancière, Kohan, and Freire, a set of possibly relevant pedagogical lessons that different manifestations of practical philosophy in new online media can offer has been extracted: the potential for emancipation and motivation, a possibility to explore, acknowledge, and address the existential and emotional distress of younger generations (»digital natives«), an opportunity to reexamine the established educational structures, as well as the potential to build niche communities that bring people together. As examples of good practice, two content creators that primarily work on the YouTube platform have been introduced: Natalie Wynn (ContraPoints) and Abigail Thorn (Philosophy Tube).
