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 mine.

  • I think, therefore I am
  • Cogito ergo sum
  • je pense, donc je suis

Rene Descartes wrote this theorem in French rather than Latin to reach a wider audience in his country than just scholars.

He forgot text-talk.

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.}
