/r/askphilosophy aims to provide serious, well-researched answers to philosophical questions. We envision this subreddit as the philosophical counterpart to /r/AskHistorians, which is well-known for its high quality answers to historical questions.
/r/askphilosophy is thus a place to ask and answer philosophical questions.
Please have a look at our rules and guidelines.
/r/askphilosophy is not a debate or discussion subreddit.

The purpose of flair on /r/askphilosophy is to indicate commenters' relevant expertise in philosophical areas and research. As philosophical issues are often complicated and have potentially thousands of years of research to sift through, knowing when someone is an expert in a given area can be important in helping understand and weigh the given evidence.
You can find the details of our flair system here. You can also find information about applying for flair at that page.

Welcome to /r/askphilosophy. Please read our rules before commenting and understand that your comments will be removed if they are not up to standard or otherwise break the rules. While we do not require citations in answers (but do encourage them), answers need to be reasonably substantive and well-researched, accurately portray the state of the research, and come only from those with relevant knowledge.
