Philosophy Goes Mainstream

Philosophy has long been out of vogue. Mainly relegated either to ivory towers or to mainstream books with titles like [Your Favorite Cultural Icon] and Philosophy, it’s now showing up alongside All the News That’s Fit to Print. The New York Times has just launched a new forum on philosophy called The Stone--an opinion series moderated by Simon Critchley. According to the editorial introduction,

thestone45_1[1] The Stone is a new opinion series that will feature the writings of contemporary philosophers on issues both timely and timeless — art, war, ethics, gender, popular culture and more.

Good for philosophy or another trivialization? Time (or The Times) will tell.
