Possible worlds semantics is the worst thing to happen to philosophy since the ontological proof.

Philosophy of Language professor (via philosophyprofessorquotes)

This is so terribly true. When told about a ‘possible World’ wherein there was a substance that looked like water, tasted like water, smelled like water, could be used in the same ways as water, and acted like water; but which wasn’t water, you just knew the whole argument had gone bonkers.

Let go

Easy come, easy go

Where’s the sky, I don’t know

Leave off chasing clouds for another day

Wisps of air, they float away

Make no mistake about it: We are At War now — with somebody — and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.

War Is good business&#8230; unless you define &#8216;good&#8217; as actions that are ethical&#8230; but then, that isn&#8217;t good business.

War Is good business… unless you define ‘good’ as actions that are ethical… but then, that isn’t good business.

if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

The Existential Coloring Book is packed to the gills with animal-people paired with dark quotes from philosophers and other people worried about the essential dark unknowability of the universe. Also, activities! From an existential connect-the-dots to a page where you can draw what Kierkegaard is thinking about, you’ll being sighing with joy as you work on them. This looks like a coloring book for kids, but it’s probably not a good idea to give it to one. This twenty-four page, 8” x 10-1/4” book is a great gift for philosophy majors or anyone else overwhelmed with a feeling of hopelessness. Features quotes from existential thinkers, mysterious pictures to color and mildly depressing activities.
