Ask Philosophers http://www.amherst.edu/askphilosophers/
From time to time, all of us have wondered to ourselves any number of philosophical questions, ranging from "What is love?" to "How can we know what is true?" These are both very compelling questions, and most people probably would like to know a bit more about each one of these queries. Fortunately, the year 2005 saw the launch of this website, whose dictum is "You Ask. Philosophers answer." Visitors can pose a question, and if it hasn't been answered in detail already, one of the participating philosophers will respond in a few days with an answer. Visitors can also just browse through previously answered questions on the left-hand side of the homepage, where they will find categories that include animals, business, children, feminism, and rationality. Visitors can also learn a bit more about the site's conception and purpose here, and they will be pleased to learn that there is a nice list of related sites offered, which includes links to the radio show, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and Philosophy, complete with archives.
