An Insight from BigHominid

Kevin Kim, a.k.a. BigHominid, writes:

Philosophers who mix it up with the hoi polloi online have the greatest chance of disseminating their ideas to the masses, and can provide an example of thoughtful, literate discourse.

Well said. Academic philosophers should emerge from time to time from their specialist cubby-holes and do their bit to raise the level of debate. It will do them some good to try to explain their ideas simply and clearly.
