Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes

Cathcart, Thomas; Klein, Daniel Author

9780810914933: Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes

Here’s a lively, hilarious, not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical traditions, schools, concepts, and thinkers. It’s Philosophy 101 for everyone who knows not to take all this heavy stuff too seriously. Some of the Big Ideas are Existentialism (what do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common?), Philosophy of Language (how to express what it’s like being stranded on a desert island with Halle Berry), Feminist Philosophy (why, in the end, a man is always a man), and much more. Finally—it all makes sense!

“I laughed, I learned, I loved it!” Roy Blount Jr.
