Time Suck of the Week

10 August, 2008 | | No Comment

Ah yes, the immortal TSoW, in which the Big Ugly Man Doll philosophizes about many things, not least of which is which part of my personal insanity I should be sharing with you, Gentle Reader.  In the case of this week, the topic is death and philosophy – in fact, the causes of death of different philosophers through the ages.  

Here you will find out – because you’ve been dying to know – what really killed Nietzsche, Ockham (shaving accident), and Aristotle (excessive moderation), among many, many others, many of whom I’ve actually heard of.  So go on, expand your horizons.  http://people.pwf.cam.ac.uk/dhm11/DeathIndex.html  

Fair warning – unless you have a degree in comparative philosophy, it’s not as funny as the cakes.  ;-)
