Reprint. Originally published: as by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein. New York: Abrams Image, 2006.

Here's an accusation - Sherlock Holmes never deduced anything. When it comes to language, it all depends on what your definition of `is' is. And one for the existentialists - you haven't lived until you think about death all the time. Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart take philosophy to task with flair and gusto in this wise and hilarious treasure of a book.

Lively, original, and powerfully informative, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar... is an irreverent crash course through the great thinkers and traditions.

It's philosophy for everyone, from the curious layperson to the professor who's seen it all.

Klein and Cathcart have the knack of getting to the core of an issue in a crystal clear line, meaning there's more room for jokes - good jokes, clever jokes, jokes that'll have you laughing so hard the people nearby will shoot you strange looks.

It's the philosophy class you wish you'd had and finally, it all makes sense!
