Welcome to the Philosophers Task Force, a task force of WikiProject Philosophy and WikiProject Biography. The task force is a group of pages in the "Wikipedia" article namespace which are devoted to the management of a specific topic or family of topics within Wikipedia; and, simultaneously, a group of editors who use those pages to collaborate on encyclopedic work. It is not a place to write encyclopedia articles directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organize the writing and editing of those articles. This group focuses on Philosophers.

Getting started

There are a few things you can do right now to get started helping the task force and the project.

  • Add {{User WP Philosophers}} to your user page. It will automatically add you to Category:Philosophers task force members. You may also choose to place the Philosophers navigation banner on your user page as well by adding {{Philosophers/Nav}}.
