Massimo Pigliucci, the creator of Figs in Winter, is a philosopher who subscribes to the radical notion that his profession ought to make us better human beings, not merely more learned ones. 

(The title of the site, "Figs in Winter," comes from a quote by Epictetus, in Discourses III.24.86, where he says that we should enjoy things in life when we have them, because to hope for them once they are gone is as foolish as to pretend figs in winter.)
