Talbot On Philosophy and the Internet

Marianne Talbot, in an article for the Telegraph (English), makes the observation that "Philosophy lends itself extremely well to online study, not least because it is essentially a solitary activity. Philosophy requires serious, sustained thought, and such thinking demands time alone to read and to think about the issues."

The latter part of the observation goes some way to answering Melbourne Philosopher's question on why philosophy is such an individual persuit.
