An Event this Friday!

On Friday, February 15, 7 p.m., Thomas Cathcart and Allison Hampton will be presenting their text on “Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington" ( at Politics and Prose bookstore,, (5015 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008, 202-364-1919).

Going to see this presentation can prove useful on a few levels: (1) it coincides with the theme of the week, on fallacies, and it can be an opportunity for you all to see "fallacies-in-the-world;" (2) it can serve as a five-point extra credit opportunity (see syllabus for further reference); and (3) you might just simply enjoy the event and the opportunity to talk about philosophy with your peers.

Note: for those that are thinking about attending, be sure to view the link to the text above so that you can have a general idea of the text being presented; and if you can, reach out to me, in class or via this blog, and let me know if you plan on attending.

Moreover, to get a flavor of this "dynamic duo" check out the following webcast, where they talk about their former bestselling book on philosophy and humor "Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar" and preview their current text, "Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington":
