Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar . . .: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes
Paperback  Paperback  
This New York Times bestseller is the hilarious philosophy course everyone wishes they'd had in school

Outrageously funny, Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . . has been a breakout bestseller ever since authorsG''and born vaudevilliansG''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 readG''and finally, it all makes sense!
