Thomas Cathcart & Daniel Klein present their new book I Think, Therefore I Draw

November 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

With just a few pen strokes and a poignantly sharp caption, cartoons have the power to inspire, seduce, outrage, and amuse. Some of today’s best cartoonists are also some of our keenest observers, and a great cartoon can provide, in addition to humor and well-needed levity, acute psychological and sociological insights. In I Think, Therefore I Draw: Understanding Philosophy Through Cartoons, Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the wildly fun international bestseller, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar…, have culled dozens of cartoons, from magazines like The New Yorker and Punch, that shine a light on mankind’s perennial conundrums—such as “Is there a cosmic scheme?”; “Is there really a difference between girls and boys?”; and “What if your right is my wrong?”. Accompanied by wonderfully witty annotations that explain how these cartoons are profoundly useful in helping us make our way through life, I Think, Therefore I Draw is a Philosophy 101 course that will make readers think and laugh.
