This text is suitable for the format painter. Two books, one box and the meaning of life - what more do you want? In the "New York Times" bestseller "Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes", you'll get a lively, hilarious, not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical traditions, schools, concepts and thinkers. It's philosophy 101 for everyone who knows not to take all this heavy stuff too seriously. But wait! There's more!Our two favourite philosopher comedians also are here to rescue everyone from the double-speak, flim-flam and alternate reality of politics. Lobbing jokes and cartoons - as well as the occasional insight from Aristotle and his peers - "Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington: Understanding Political Doublespeak Through Philosophy and Jokes" explains what politicos are really up to when they state; 'The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence' (Donald Rumsfeld), 'It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is' (Bill Clinton) or even, 'We hold these truths to be self-evident...' (Thomas Jefferson, et al). Finally - it all makes sense!
