Just missed Socrates...

Philosophy Now has been running a feature called Dear Socrates for a long time, 10 years, it seems. And it seems that I have missed all but the last in the series! Too bad, too, because whoever was answering letters from fans and critics sounds like the real thing -- if Socrates wrote in English.

Unfortunately, Philosophy Now has no easy- to-find link to an index of past columns, so those of us who want to see what Socrates has to say about more or less current events will just have to use search engines to find his wit and wisdom.

Maybe if we are lucky he is going to be Oprah's successor!
