Philacronyms (Friday Fun)


This week’s Friday Fun comes courtesy of David Boonin (University of Colorado). Thank you, David, for your suggestion, and for inspiring others to send in their contributions to this occasional series (seriously, be inspired people, or this series may not last).

David writes, “The idea is to come up with a single sentence that summarizes the most important thing(s) you need to know about a particular philosopher where the first letter of each word, in order, spells the philosopher’s name.” He helpfully provides some excellent examples:

There’s
H20

Large

Corrupted
Regular
Athenians,

Executed
Socrates

Thomas
Hobbes,

Man’s
Anarchistic
State,

So have at it, folks. I’ll begin with a tribute to the game’s creator:

Defends
Abortion,
Vanquishes
Incarceration,
Discusses
Blacks,
