DEMOCRACY with Christopher Phillips

Energized by the initial optimism surrounding Obama's presidency and concerned with the increasingly fierce nature of the partisanship infecting Congress, Phillips' latest project is Constitution Cafe (2011), an effort to engage everyday Americans in constructive dialogue and debate about the nature of our government, the meaning of citizenship and our most important political documents. Phillips has taught at New York University and is the founder and executive director of the Constitution Cafe and the Society for Philosophical Inquiry (SPI).
