How to teach philosophy in swim meets.

teacher fish teaches fish school cogito ergo sum

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.

My latest cartoon in PsychCentral is about the lady or the tiger. (If you’ve heard of Descartes, you probably already read the short story.}
