Ah Philosophy, the search for the great answers of life itself and the greater meaning of it all. I've read quite a few comments since the AoM community was founded, and it would appear to me that there are quite a few armchair-philosophers out there.

I propose to use this forum to encourage intelligent discussion among us. In this spirit, I'll be posing a daily philosophical question in the Discussion section. I'm looking forward to the coming discussions.

Here's a link to 300+ free online documentaries. Plenty of philosophical stuff to chew about listed here - The Fog of War (An interview with Robert McNamara) is included in the list. So is Earthlings, if you like controversial vegan philosophical arguments, plus plenty of other stuff.

I think it is great how many "young" philosophers there are in this group.

Hey guys. I'm a 19 year old neuroscience student from NZ. I also study classics and philosophy in my spare time and am beginning to take up writing as a hobby. I'm particularly interested in political philosophy and metaphysics. I'm looking forward to getting involved in these discussions and expanding my knowledge.

Hello everyone. I am an 25 year old entrepreneur in real estate investment. I also enjoy moonlighting as an armchair philosopher. I am always interested in a good philosophical discussion, and the opportunity for me to learn, and share what I have learned.

Hello all! I am a student of archaeology and anthropology. Thus, there's quite a lot of philosophy involved in my studies. I am looking to learn more about social philosophies and materiality; particularly those works written past 2000 as most of the archaeology theory books I have been reading go up until 2006. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More
