A Philosophical Question? There's an app for that.
(2010-09-30)AMHERST, MA (wfcr) - Five years ago, Alexander George gave the world of philosophy a very modern twist. The Amherst College professor created the website askphilosophers.org. It lets users peruse pearls of wisdom from dozens of today's philosophers on all sorts of topics like happiness, justice, freedom and beauty. This year, Alexander George took the matter one step further. He developed an app -- a new mobile version of the website. It's called "ask Phil" and he talked about it with WFCR's Bob Paquette. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
