philosophy can be hot

Imagine a Tuesday night, in lively Dupont Circle. In a dim bar, surrounded by kegs, a table full of lawyers is shaking off the workday, drinking beer, laughing and . . . listening to a lecture on Kant.

Here's what's wild: Philosophy is hot nowadays, hot as, say, Ricky Martin in pleather. When a couple of folks decided to hold a lecture series called "Philosophy on Tap" in the bar Brickskeller, they thought they'd get 40 or 50 people willing to pay $195. They got 150.
