Who says philosophers don't have fun?

Basically, Kant was right by Carrie Jenkins, aka Conceptual Truth. Philosophy should always be this much fun! Also check out her philosophy band, The 21st Century Monads.

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable.

The one about Quine has me almost in tears over here.

Every noted philosopher was both right and wrong, depending on the context and scope of their suppositions. Except Satre, who was always absolutely full of shit.

I'd have to go with Nietzsche on that score.

Well, Satre was a completely f***ing idiot, I agree. But Sartre -- that guy could definitely smoke a Gitanne.

I dunno, Sartre's bit about the gaze of the other was OK. And his take on why we do have free will was at least original. Other than that, I'm not particularly exercised about it one way or another. De Beauvoir, despite having her own problems with inconsistency, was probably the better thinker of the pair.

If only she could sing. Or play the guitar.

"Hell is other people" is an observation of great merit when it comes to highways, the tube and crowded places.
