    Please share your own unfair fun-poking at the towering intellects of our history.

    ----------------

    Socrates: first of all, he was pretty ugly. But there's worse. He also uses sophistry quite a lot in his dialogues. Dialogues which, by a benevolent stroke of luck, happened to be written by his pupil.

    Plato: seriously, Plato? The philosopher king? Don't you realise you just single-handedly created enlightened despotism in 360 BC?

    Aristotle: pretty deep, pretty systematic, but god, he could have done with a writing course. The dude has as much stylistic elegance as a lorry crushing a field of beautiful tulips.

    Plotinus: basically Plato, except he took LSD.

    Aquinas: wow, such 5 ways to prove the existence of God (not 4), much brilliant, very Catholic super intellect.

    Kant: even in heaven he keeps philosophising about the rational grounds for the colour of his pee. He wants to stop, but he Kant.

    Hegel: was clever enough to turn a middle school fallacy into a whole philosophical system.

    Kierkegaard: he thinks Abraham was awesome for being willing to murder his son, all in the name of 'faith in the voice of God'. Basically an early, foppish-Dane version of Bin Laden.

    Schopenhauer: believes in Nirvana but also that women were animals "with long hair and short ideas". Apparently Nirvana is only for men.

    Nietzsche: "If you go to meet woman, forget not thy whip". Being a virgin, he didn't know sex was possible without whips.

    Foucault: I'm sorry, but name a single under-age boy who would feel safe in a room with this guy.

    We don't need to poke fun at Foucault.

    The first chapter of The Order of Things does that all by itself.

    I think I'm still reading that fucking interminable analogy.

    I just checked. It's nine pages long, Ren.

    Nine. Pages.

    Lmao. For some reason I can't remember that chapter at all, though I read the Order of Things in its entirety. Maybe it didn't impress me very much, or maybe I felt I was of too sound a mind and skipped it.

    I'll check your screenshot.

    "Do not care for this obnoxious analogy". :laughing::laughing::laughing:

    Clearly you were feeling strongly about it!

    It was such a slog for no payoff. What a pain.

    Now, the core of the book is another matter, and the whole thrust behind the concept of the episteme I thought was fantastic.

    Still, it was a relief to go back to one of Searle's slim little volumes after that, lol.

    The most pathetic philosopher out there is probably Max Stirner, wrote about being narcissistic and selfish and then ended up dying alone and sick.

    Probably from Stirner like most of his ideas.

    I think syphilis is only one hypothesis. Maybe @Sidis Coruscatis has got all the facts

    Like Kant. But not like Aristotle, who was happily married.

    This might be too horrible to mention but wasn't Socrates a pedophile?

    I think pederasty was more or less common practice at the time.

    But practically all elite Greek men were pederasts at the time, except maybe the Spartans (though I might be wrong about that).

    This isn't the set up to a joke. Now, what's the difference between a pedophile and a pederast?

    I don't know about Spartan pederasty, but weren't they bisexuals?
