I second

I don't know how many of ya'll follow PEAsoup, but this rant is a must. I'd like to second that. I know a lot of this is our fault. When was the last time outside of class you actually tried to engage someone (I'm including fellow academics) in a philosophical discussion? That said, come on! If philosophy's not going to be able to deal with 'enduring questions' what are we doing?

Quite right Second Suitor! Enduring questions is a philosopher's bread and butter. But we have a responsibility to make other people endure questions too.
