The Argument Clinic

Don mentioned something the first day of class about utilizing philosophy to construct a good argument. I thought this might be a good time to post Dr. Oliver's much-employed example of how not to make a good argument, courtesy of Monty Python's The Flying Circus.

If you'll allow a collaborative edit, Dean, one good Python clip deserves another:

Brighten your Monday with a sing-along of this classic Python song (you might even learn something)! youtu.be/dBPf6P332uM #montypython


  1. Thank you Dean. That was very funny and relevant.

  2. No it wasn't. YES IT WAS....

    It's dangerous to get me started with the Pythons, I've added a clip to Dean's post. "Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving, and revolving..."

    And then there's the Philosopher's Song, which nicely canvasses much of our course. Maybe later?
