PTP Student Programs

The PTP strives to invigorate the study of institutions and ideas that make societies free, prosperous, and fair. We pursue this goal with a simultaneous commitment to intellectual pluralism and ideological diversity. We draw heavily from Michael Polanyi's vision of a "republic of science" wherein the norms and standards of academic excellence emerge from an open-ended and competitive environment.

In this vein, the PTP coordinates several student programs at Brown University including:

The Philosophy, Politics & Economics Society 

The Brown University Journal of Philosophy, Politics & Economics

Independent Grants for Student Initiatives
