I am, Therefore I Think: Philosophers Answer Your Questions About Love, Nothingness and Everything Else...

Alexander George set up the website AskPhilosophers.org to address a curious phenomenon. We all confront philosophical problems almost daily, but very few of us have the formal training to solve them philosophically. To bridge this gap, he assembled an international team of philosophers to give clear, jargon-free answers to questions posted on the website by members of the general public. Some of the best questions and answers have been selected and reprinted here. Most are illuminating, or at the very least, refreshingly honest. Responding to one problem, Mark Crimmins writes: ‘Fortunately, philosophers have thought long and hard about this question. Unfortunately, we haven’t figured it out yet.’
