Praise

“Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart romp through key concepts in western philosophy courtesy of cartoons. . . A perfect dummies’ guide for those who like to smile wryly as the gently exercise their brains.” —The Age

“Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein are up to their old tricks. The distinguished gagmen have been cracking serious philosophy jokes since they were classmates at Harvard in the 1960s, and they give signs neither of curtailing their wit nor moderating its wickedness. . . .[I Think Therefore I Draw] transports ordinary laypersons into extraordinary states of wizened enlightenment without the aid of service dogs or mind-altering substances. This feat often requires more than the application of conventional scholarship. Sometimes only a joke will do. . . . I Think, Therefore I Draw is easy to pick up. Not so easy to set down.” —The Berkshire Edge

“From Zeno to Nietzsche, a lighthearted, illustrated romp through philosophical thought…. [Cathcart and Klein]  succeed in making philosophy accessible and fun. Entertaining and slyly illuminating.” Kirkus Reviews
 
Priase for Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar…


“[Cathcart and Klein] know their stuff, and wear their learnedness lightly, and Plato and a Platypus is a pleasure to read.…I can’t help but love this book, and I have been quoting liberally from it” —Philosophy Now

“A Hoot.” —Times Literary Supplement

“What happens when you mix corny jokes, one-liners and vaudeville humour with some of life’s great lessons? You get an extraordinary read you’ll want to share with as many people as possible.” —Orlando Sentinel

“The zaniest bestseller of the year.” —The Boston Globe

“I laughed, I learned, I loved it.” —Roy Blount, Jr.
