Description

By Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein
#2605. This New York Time bestseller is the hilarious philosophy course everyone wishes they’d had in school.
Outrageously funny, this book has been a breakout bestseller ever since authors – and born vaudevillians – Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein did their schtick on NPR’s Weekend Edition.
Lively, original, and powerfully informative, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar is a not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical thinkers and traditions, from existentialism (What do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common?) to logic (Sherlock Holmes never deduced anything). Philosophy 101 for those who like to take the heavy stuff lightly, this is a joy to read…and finally, it all makes sense!
224 pages. Softcover. Copyright 2008. Reprint.
