I just discovered a book of essays on the philosophical connections and nuances of probably my ALL TIME favorite show (next to Curb Your Enthusiasm), Seinfeld.

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com...

What do you think? Also, if you are familiar with the show and philosophy, what philosophical implications do you think could be derived from the show?
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

Should we subsidize education?

The Fool: I love those shows too. But I don't think its philosopher in the professional sense. I also have book on Beatles and philosphy, that an ex bought me because of my philosophic back round but its not that kind of philosophy. lol
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

I agree, but that's why I said implications, not specifically the true philosophy expressed.

The Fool: but don't even trust that. Trust only what someone can logically defend. That is what matters in the end.

I don't know why you won't share your philosophy credentials. You've stressed them on multiple occasions. Do you have something to hide?

The Fool: I have already explained why less implicitly then I would like. Secondly, it is a virtue of the philosopher, to be able to defend something from pure reason. I am a Rationalist at heart. No BODY is about logic not even God is above logic.
For what is IS. And even God must be IS. or he does't exist. I am claiming zero credentials, but if you can not logically refute me I will NOT YEILD!! EVER>
