#221 "Hegel and the March of History"
Legends say there was a man once who read all the way through Phenomenology of Spirit, cover to cover, but the moment he read the final page he died of exhaustion.
#220 "Existentialism at the Beach"
Also...I thought the sign was strictly prohibiting NOT doing those things.
#219 "Diogenes and Plato"
By the way, if you are being bullied in school, the advice you will often get from your parents and teachers is to ignore them and they will stop. This is bad advice. Trust me, if you bite them, that will be the end of it.
#218 "Philosophy News Network: Postmodernism Special Report"
Also, existentialism is when, like...you are too cool to care that smoking kills you, because we are all gonna die anyway and stuff.
#217 "In Which Nietzsche Learns the True Meaning of Christmas"
A true Übermensch spends Christmas miserable and alone, as everyone knows.
#216 "Thales Invents Philosophy"
And yes, to answer your question, regrets are made out of water.
#215 "Existential Chess"
Okay, I promise this is the last time I'll do a "radical freedom" joke. Although when you think about it no promise that I make today can actually determine my future actions, on account of...well, you know.
#214 "The Amazing Descartes"
And for my next trick, I will move my body around using only my soul! But my soul is immaterial and my body material, how I am doing it? Magic. That's how.
#213 "The Death of Schopenhauer"
Stupid God, giving us eternal paradise. Who put this asshole in charge anyway?
#212 "Sherlock Hume"
Hey, just because I've always been wrong about every other case, doesn't mean I'm wrong about this one!
#211 "Social Contract Theory: The Game"
It turns out that when you agree to play a game with Camus, you implicitly agree to the "Camus Contract". That means Camus is gonna do whatever the fuck he wants.
#208 "Nietzsche at the Bar"
Nietzsche, later on, writing aphorisms: "Let's see, how you can express that you hate women in a way that sounds deep..."
#207 "Hegel and Fichte"
some people think this comic is educational lol
#205 "Philosophers in Vegas"
Hume had been burned by Descartes before, but he figured that was no reason not to trust him now...
#204 "Existential Ad Agency"
But seriously, I'm pretty sure the taco with the doritos as the shell was a metaphorical representation of our inescapable despair.
#203 "The 100% True Story of the Writing of the Communist Manifesto"
"A communist society will be organzied by the principle: from each according to his ability, to each according to his need"
"Marx, chain smoking is NOT an ability"
"Oh yeah? Then I'd like to see you try it"
And so Hume's skepticism was defeated. Or...was it? Can we really ever know? Dun dun dunnnnnn.
