Long Distance Wisdom - Rick Lewis, Philosophy Now

One of the less well-known benefits of the internet has been a huge expansion in the possibilities of studying philosophy. Taking a degree course from home is very hard work, and you won’t have the emotional support of fellow students around you, nor the stimulation of informal conversations with them in the bar about your topic of study. You still have to write essays and assignments, and meet deadlines. You still need to sit exams or fulfil assessment requirements in order to receive your degree. However, you can take the degree without having to uproot your life, resign from your job, abandon your children, sell your house, or put the dog up for adoption. https://philosophynow.org/issues/108/Long_Distance_Wisdom
