At Ask Philosophers, as the name suggests, you get to ask a question which is then answered by philosophers. Here's one question that's been asked:
Isn't it more important to know what is true rather than what is truth? And can't one know the former without knowing the latter? If so, what is the point...Click through the link to find a couple of answers. Or there's also this, highlighted in a piece about the site in Education Guardian:
Q: Assuming there is no afterlife, is it irrational to fear death?I don't say this answer is necessarily wrong, but I have a question about it. Does 'fear of losing those pleasures' presuppose a continuous subject, the person who has the pleasures and then loses them? But if there's no afterlife, once the pleasures are lost there's no person any longer, no sufferer of the loss. So, while I think fear of death probably is rational, I'm not sure if Peter Lipton has given a persuasive reason why. (Via B&W.)
A: Peter Lipton: It's irrational to fear what death will feel like if you know it won't feel like anything; but it doesn't follow that it is irrational to fear death. It's not irrational to look forward to the pleasures of living, and if we know that death will take these away, the fear of losing those pleasures doesn't seem irrational either.
