I choose to take this as a swipe against history of philosophy — and a good swipe at that! Change the names with “Kant” or “Plato” or “Aristotle” and the joke still works for me.Report

AD, I think the joke goes the other way around, a swipe against narrow-minded analytic philosophers, perhaps with regard to history of philosophy but also “non-Western” philosophy more broadly. Change the names with “Nagarjuna” or “Confucius” or “Zera Yacob” and the joke is unfortunately taken from reality.Report

Poignant and hilarious. Does a great job of making fun of both sides of the “this is not philosophy” BS.Report

Well, history of philosophy isn’t philosophy, so there’s no BS there!Report

““The safest general characterization of the Zorgpligian philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Poogsnarg” Report
