Submit Article to Persuade Me

I welcome other contributors to Persuade Me.

Contributions relevant to the theme of the blog will be published on the terms explained in the panel to the right.

Contributions are published on the same conditions as comments, and in submitting an article to me you are agreeing to accept these terms and in particular to take full responsibility for your post and  ensure that it is not of a defamatory nature under all relevant law and does not contain any material for which you do not have copyright or permission to publish from the owner of the copyright.

Please email your submission to me at, providing your full contact details.

I will endeavour to get back to you quickly with agreement to publish, perhaps with suggestions for changes, or reasons why I do not think your piece is suitable for this site.

Your submission should be accompanied by a short bio along the lines of what appears below my posts:

Emeritus Professor, University of South Australia Honorary Professor of the Inglis Clark Centre at the University of Tasmania. I am a philosopher with a background in philosophy of science and reasoning in natural language. Following a career spent mainly in applying philosophy to the task of developing a new university, I am now enjoying a return to philosophising about society, science and the environment

Thanks for being interested in contributing to Persuade Me.
