    Funny !
    I have forbidden my children to drink milk or read philosophy until they are adults.  My strategy:  their adolescent rebellion will inevitably drive them to sneak off to the woods with a stolen jug of milk and a good philosophy book from my bookshelf — giggling the whole way there.

    PS: could you petition PATHEOS to stop the frickin’ pop-up adds!  Damn it!

      @Sabio:disqus and @aaronpxian:disqus , have you had the pop-up ad appear more than once a day on the same computer? It is not supposed to do that. I can live with some advertising since it is what funds things, but I really don’t want it to be a nuisance. I spoke with the folks at Patheos about it, and they said that it should not happen more than once in a 24 hour period on the same IP address. If it does, perhaps you could let me know the browser and OS, since maybe something isn’t working right. Thanks!

    Nice! And second to the pop up ads comment.

    Firefox with noscript add-on equals no pop ups.

    This is probably the best thing I will see all day!  I have a 4 year old and a 10 month old, we listen to a history of philosophy podcast every weekend at breakfast.  After this I fear for their future.

    To be honest, I’m also a little concerned about the Kant.  But at least it isn’t Heidigger.

    ah yes, doubting is the epitome of all intellectual achievement.   so much has been done in this world by doubters.   if only the faithful could see the light!
