More About Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar . . . by Thomas Cathcart; Daniel Klein
 
 
 
Overview

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 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
And now, you can read Daniel Klein's further musings on life and philosophy in Travels with Epicurusand Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change it."
