Hello Everyone, I am a student of philosophy and physics and work for a non-profit philosophy organisation on the internet. (You may have seen our website http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Philosophy.htm) We are concerned about the state of the world (the destruction of nature, lack of truth and intellectual thinking, quality of education etc.). At the heart of Philosophy is the belief that truth is very important if humanity is to live wisely. To help fund this work and promote philosophy on the internet we have also created an online Philosophy Shop. For those who find it interesting / useful and would like to help we have a page of link code that makes it easy for people to post things about the Philosophy Shop (below is one example). See; http://www.cafepress.com/philosophy_shop/1327260
All the best,
