I Think Therefore I Draw: Understanding Philosophy Through Cartoons with Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart

Cathcart & Klein "I Think Therefore I Draw" Titcomb's Bookshop November 7 at 3pm

Titcomb's Bookshop is happy to announce that Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein will visit the bookshop to talk about their new book, I Think, Therefore I Draw on Thursday afternoon, November 7 at 3pm.  

I Think, Therefore I Draw is a hilarious new exploration of philosophy through cartoons from the duo who brought you the New York Times bestselling Plato and a Platypus Walk Into A Bar

 

Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein have been thinking deep thoughts and writing jokes for decades, and now they are here to help us understand Philosophy through cartoons, and cartoons through Philosophy. Covering topics as diverse as religion, gender, knowledge, morality, and the meaning of life (or the lack thereof), I Think, Therefore I Draw gives a thorough introduction to all of the major debates in philosophy through history and the present. And since they explain with the help of a selection of some of the smartest cartoonists working today, you’ll breeze through these weighty topics as you guffaw and slap your knee. 

Cathcart and Klein’s Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar… and Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates have been a favorite of philosophers and non-philosophers alike for years. Packed with dozens of witty cartoons and loaded with profound philosophical insight, I Think, Therefore I Draw will delight readers and leave them enlightened.

Thomas Cathcart is the internationally bestselling coauthor of Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . . and Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates with his friend Daniel Klein. He studied philosophy at Harvard and has spent most of his career in health care. Cathcart lives in upstate New York.

Daniel Klein, a graduate of Harvard, has written five novels and two humor books and cowritten or ghost-written twelve nonfiction books. He lives in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.,
