Philosophy humor

Philosophers are often the sources of great witticisms, some of which have been recorded here by Gerry Dworkin.

Also, imagine sitting down every day to the same rye-and-Swiss sandwich and saying, “Hot ziggety!”. And imagine at the same time that you are Ludwig Wittgenstein.

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

  1. Wittgenstein was a master of the pithy comment, which makes this story credible and funny. Also, last night I had a dream that everyone in the world forgot about Wittgenstein but me, so I spent the rest of the dream trying to lead an academic crusade to get somebody to read his books. None of you were any help.


  2. We certainly need to bring more Wittgenstein into our philosophy curriculum. Students are now graduating without having read any of his work (at least in classes); Chuck Johnson would be profoundly disappointed!
