I see that at LanguageLog they’ve put up two jokes. One of my students told me a philosophy joke the other day that I figure I might as well share:

Q: How did the philosopher deal with the awkward sexual advances of the student?

A: By denying the existence of the proposition!

Anyone else have any jokes to share?

Also, I’ll be spending most of the coming week in Portland at the Pacific APA meeting, participating both in a panel on blogging, and commenting on a paper by Otávio Bueno on MacBride’s criticism of Resnik’s structuralism. So I probably won’t post until afterwards, but I may have some conference blogging to do when I get back.

Q: How many Marxists does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: None. The bulb contains the seeds of its own revolution.

Have fun at the APA!

at a philosophy talk during Q&A –

speaker: You do know that a double negative makes a positive, don’t you?

questioner: hmm, well does a double positive make a negative?

speaker: of course not!

somebody in the back of the room: yeah, yeah.
