"Philosographics" August 30, 2011

Genis Carreras renders various philosophical views down to pastels in predominantly geometric shapes.  I’m not sure if his representation of atheism is supposed to be an upside down cross or a middle finger (or if atheism should really be represented primarily by its opposition to Christianity or to the symbolic connotations of the cross, and not as a rejection of gods more generally):


But I love this contrast:


















There are many more worth perusing. Some I find misleading, some I find thought provoking. Most serve less as illustrations of philosophical positions than interpretations of them. That’s mostly a good thing.

H/T: Maria Popova, who provides larger versions of some of the posters which allow for reading the short descriptive texts given for each philosophy.
