Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Curated academic philosophy site Super Philosophy announced today that Phin Upham has been named head curator of the site's contemporary philosophy section. Several of Upham's published essays have been previously featured in the contemporary philosophy and reason sections of the site, and the blog's editorial board cites Upham's experience with the blog as a deciding factor in his appointment. Super Philosophy would like to highlight his contributions to the site and to the subjects on which he writes, and look forward to his contribution as a head curator.

Phin Upham has degrees from Harvard University and from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. As an undergraduate at Harvard, he was Editor-in-Chief for three volumes of the Harvard Review of Philosophy from 1998 to 2000. He also served as editor for three compilations of interviews and essays from the Review. Philosophers in Conversation was published in 2002, and contains one of the few known interviews given by philosopher John Rawls; The Space of Love and Garbage was published in 2007; All We Need is a Paradigm was published in 2009.

Super Philosophy has chosen Phin Upham as a head curator based on his background of engaging writing and reflective study of modern philosophy. His work can be found in numerous scholarly journals and philosophy blogs. The editors of Super Philosophy also cite his extensive record of community service, including major community outreach in West Philadelphia as the youngest member of the Board of the University of Pennsylvania Museum's Young Friends. Upham has shown educational leadership by overseeing all graduate student involvement in the museum.
