AskPhilosophers what they think about philosophical problems! A philosophical version of Ask MetaFilter. Not much is up yet, but the lineup of panelists is brimming with top-notch academics. Hopefully the site will take off.

This is all very well, but ought to be complemented by AskTaxiDrivers and AskBarbersAndHairdressers sites.

Beautiful. Thanks, painquale, I'm going to enjoy this site.

Many of the questions posed have not been answered.

One of those philosophers should post their password here and we could clear that up in no time.

For some reason, I thought this had already been posted here...

According to the bottom of the 'About this site' page, the site was launched last Saturday.

I like the layout, which makes it enjoyable to read. I also like the idea of a panel. I certainly hope they can keep up with the pace of questions. God knows there are many too ask, and so few to be answered... ;)

There was another site posted which had philosophers answering questions in a very snarky style...

It's more philosophical to ask questions than to answer them.

Wasn't this already a similar thing as this: http://www.shef.ac.uk/uni/projects/ptpdlp/questions/feedback/feedback.html

This site is much older, and already has much answers to your questions.

Seek and ya....... shall not find a search button.
