IPPL bridges the gap between academic philosophy and the general public. Its purpose is to cultivate discussions between professional philosophers and those who have interest in the subject regardless of experience or credentials. The Institute was founded on the premise that anyone can do philosophy; that philosophy relates to day-to-day life; and that philosophical communities are fun, fulfilling, and essential for democracy.

Through radio, films, blogs, books and magazines, discussions, and digital archives, IPPL creates a world-wide philosophical community. Through fellowships and publications, it provides opportunities for professional and amateur philosophers alike. It is proving, time and time again, that people like philosophy and that philosophy is good for people. It aims to show that despite the tenor of the time, deep thought and philosophical contemplation can be in vogue.
