What is Philosophy?



PQED: Philosophical Questions Every Day is the official blog of the podcast, Why? Philosophical Discussions About Everyday Life, a project of The Institute for Philosophy in Public Life. The blog is dedicated to the exploration of philosophy in all of its forms, acknowledging that any topic can be philosophical if we ask the right questions. PQED is for everyone, regardless of their expertise or credentials.
