For the tenth anniversary issue of The Philosophers' Magazine, the editors have put ten questions to ten leading thinkers. On the Talking Philosophy blog they list out how the chosen thinkers have answered just one of them: has philosophy responded adequately to the big events and debates of the last decade, such as climate change and the post-9/11 world?

  1. The good old post- 911 world. How about for a change some focus on slightly larger scale post WW1 world. Even the post WW2 world. Post holocaust world. Post Stalin's genocidal world. Post Mao Tse Tung world. Post renaissance of torture in the west world. Post Project for a New American Century know, where the neo-cons described the desirablity of an aggressive foreign policy of regime change around the world, including "simultaneous multi-theatre wars, " and that "The process of transformationis likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a new Pearl Harbor." And what do you know; within a year along came a new Pearl Harbour.
