What Would Plato Have Thought of Crowdsourcing?

What Would Plato Have Thought of Crowdsourcing? | Knowledge Broker |

All the questions about the meaning of life, Plato found, belonged to the same area of knowledge, which we now call philosophy. Plato made the quest for understanding life one unified whole. So he would have loved the worldwide web, and would have likely been a proponent of Internet neutrality and keeping the web “whole.” Plato, the father of philosophy, would have indeed loved the Internet, maybe a little too much.

A new book, Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away, by novelist Rebecca Goldstein, lets us actually follow Plato around in modern life as he discovers the latest fruits of the Internet revolution.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

I suggest you also read the book review of 'Plato at the Googleplex' from The Boston Globe.
