Plato at the Googleplex : why philosophy won't go away

Image of item

First edition.

If Plato came to life in the 21st century and set out on a multi-city speaking tour, how would he handle a host on Fox News who challenges him on religion and morality? How would he mediate a debate on the best way to raise a child between a Freudian psychoanalyst and a Tiger Mom? How would he answer a neuroscientist who, about to scan Plato's brain, argues that all his philosophical problems can be solved by our new technologies? What would he make of Google and the idea that knowledge can be crowdsourced rather than reasoned out by experts?
