Plato week has ended, but you can still see the details below if you're interested.
A couple weeks ago, we kicked off a series called "Philosopher Week" in order to build up the content we have about famous thinkers.
The basics: We will designate one philosopher each week, and each person who asks a question relating to that philosopher will be eligible to win a prize.
How to enter: Ask a question relating to the philosopher of the week, and tag it with that person's name (this week, use the plato tag). Each question you ask will get you one entry into a random drawing to win a book of your choice (up to $50).
After running this contest for a few weeks and observing the results, we're adding a few more stipulations:
- The book you choose doesn't have to be about the Philosopher of the week, but it should pertain to philosophy in some respect. Paperback, hardcover, or books for e-readers like Kindle are all fine.
- There must be a minimum of 8 new questions about the Philosopher of the Week in order for the prizes to awarded.
Choosing the philosopher of the week: We choose the philosopher of the week based on your suggestions. If you have suggestions, leave them as an answer to this meta post.
