Actually, I think I used the wrong word in this caption. The name of the class for this school of fish should be called Philosophy, not Logic, as the theorem, I think, therefore I am is by a philosopher, not a logician! (I took both subjects, but apparently not enough of either.)
Some cartoon ideas just resonate with a cartoonist more than others, and they keep working at it with different captions, trying to get it “right”! This is one of them.
- I think, therefore I am
- Cogito ergo sum
- je pense, donc je suis
Rene Descartes chose to write this theorem in French, rather than Latin, to reach a wider audience in his country than just scholars.
He forgot text slang.
