Holden Rasmussen has a mission to help everyday people understand the tools of philosophy.

“I want to push back against the idea that one has to be in academia to understand philosophy because it’s so entangled in our everyday lives.” He explained his broad definition of a philosopher as a ‘conceptual engineer,’ one who works with concepts that are old and need re-tooling. “People use these techniques every day.
