Yesterday, as I turned on my radio for my daily NPR-listening ritual on my way to school I happened to catch the title of a book that sounded fascinating, it’s called Plato & a Platypus Walk Into a Bar…Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes. When I got home I was able to find an interesting and short interview NPR did with the authors back in May when the book came out. You should take a listen here. After listening, I am even more determined to buy the book.
For me, it seems like the book hits on something Jesus found out a long time ago, people resonate with stories and pithy sayings (e.g. parables).
