This New York Times bestseller is the hilarious philosophy course everyone wishes they'd had in school.

Outrageously funny, Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar has been a breakout bestseller ever since author and born vaudevillians Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein did their schtick on NPR's Weekend Edition. Lively, original, and powerfully informative, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar is a not so reverent crash course through the great philosophical thinkers and traditions, from Existentialism (What do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common?) to Logic (Sherlock Holmes never deduced anything). Philosophy 101 for those who like to take the heavy stuff lightly, this is a joy to read and finally, it all makes sense!
