Philosophy is Phunny,
This review is from: Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar...: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes (Hardcover)
I found this book to be informative and fun. I had always thought of formal philosphy as being, well, dry. However, within the confines of this brief book, philosophy comes alive, surprisingly with....humour.
The concepts and various philosophies are easily explained away with wit and charm. Quite a number of times, I found myself laughing out loud, and desirous of sharing many of the jokes.....thus, best not to read it outside your house (unless you want to entertain perfect strangers).
The format is punchy and straight. There is no time for boredom, or too much reverence.
A very enlightening, light and jaunty read.
