I finally logged in today to Academia [dot] edu for the first time in a long time. I had a bit of information to update.
Anyway, I don’t have premium access–yet. However, I have found the service valuable.
Case in point: Impact in philosophy, as well as many other disciplines, is very important. Here I am, a fledgling in Philosophy, having just earned my MA, and I already have over 50 mentions.
I am very grateful to those who think me and my work worth mentioning. It is an incredible honor.
It helps, also, in securing a job in philosophy, which I think I have done.
Good luck to everyone. Thank you for your mentions.
