T-shirts — again!

Sorry to bother everyone with this silliness, just at the end-of-term rush, but I’m hoping to get this vital matter settled before summer begins, so that we’ll have something ready at the start of Fall semester.

What should go on the back of the t-shirt? (I am assuming the front will be a Greek phi.) There have been quite a few suggestions, which I am dictatorially reducing to these six finalists. Which (if any) do you prefer?

1. “USU Philosophy (I think)”
2. “Anticipatorily hearkening the eschatological apokalupsis of Sein”
3. “Are we thinking yet?”
4. “The unexamined life sucks”
5. “What do you really know?”
6. “I think I think; therefore, I think I am”

Let me know!

Curious about the ways humans use their minds and hearts to distract themselves from the meaninglessness of life.

  1. The votes are in (or so I’m guessing). The most popular slogan was “Are we thinking yet?” with two runners-up: “USU Philosophy (I think)” and “The unexamined life sucks.” But meanwhile, Harrison Kleiner’s friends came up with another slogan that I think has some real merit:

    USU Philosophy
    Think About It.

    I’m recommending that we go with this one. It captures the “thinking aspect” of two of the favored titles, plus carries with it the ambiguity of (1) recommending thinking in general with (2) recommending that people look into philosophy at USU. Perhaps we can get a stylized picture of Rodin’s sculpture “The Thinker” on the front – I’ll look into it.

    Maybe, if there is enough demand, we can get a series of t-shirts going, with different slogans, so that people can pick out the one that suits them best. That would be cool, wouldn’t it?


  2. I was actually about to recommend “Think About It” myself, so I’m simultaneously pleased and perturbed that Harrison Kleiner’s friends beat me to it.
