What My Son Thinks of Philosophy



After our two-year-old son’s bath we decided to let him air out. I know, you already know what’s going to happen. While I was working on some work for my graduate program my wife heard, “poo, poo, poo.” That usually means “Winnie the Pooh,” but this time, you guessed it-he took a crap right on one of my reading assignments for a philosophy of language course. I guess my son has an early start at hating “the linguistic turn” in philosophy. I think Deleuze did the exact same thing once.

    I guess his philosophy on life is “shit happens”. 🙂

    Haha, having taken several courses on the philosophy of language, I can say that I feel the exact same way about Grice.

    hmm… that’s rather large for a three-year-old. i think you might need to increase his fibre intake. and provide better reading material obviously.
