What is AskPhilosophers? This site puts the talents and knowledge of philosophers at the service of the general public.

That’s not something that you get to say every day, that you’re putting philosophy to the service of the general public. Too bad, though. We could probably all use a bit more public philosophy. Of course, it used to be that you could be put to death for doing that.

Also, it’s not often you see an AskA service with an attitude:
