Understanding Philosophy Through Cartoons

Book Cover - I Think, Therefore I Draw: Understanding Philosophy Through Cartoons

Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein have been thinking deep thoughts and writing jokes for decades, and now they are here to help us understand Philosophy through cartoons, and cartoons through Philosophy. Covering topics as diverse as religion, gender, knowledge, morality, and the meaning of life (or the lack thereof), their new book is: "I Think, Therefore I Draw."

Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart studied philosophy together at Harvard in the last millennium. Danny has written comedy for Lily Tomlin, Flip Wilson, and others, and published scores of fiction and non-fiction books. Tom studied theology and managed health care organizations before linking up with Danny to write "Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar," "Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington," and "Heidegger and a Hippo Walk through Those Pearly Gates."
