In the spirit of David Chalmers’ classic page of items of philosophical humor (given below), here is a page for argumentation humor. Have funny story or a favorite joke related to argumentation or rhetoric? Perhaps something that’s just plain neat but doesn’t fit anywhere else? Here’s a place for it! Send a note with your joke or story to spatterson[at]marygrove[dot]edu and I’ll put it up here. Jokes, stories, links, pictures, videos, etc. welcome. Thanks to Dan Cohen for the suggestion and for the first argumentation-specific link, the Arguer’s Lexicon!
- The Arguer’s Lexicon maintained by Dan Cohen
- David Chalmers’ Philosophical Humor Page (lots of good stuff here, plus links to more at the bottom of the page)
- Ten Reasons Not to do Philosophy by Tony Lynch of the Australasian Association of Philosophy
- Dinosaur Comics is probably more fun for argumentation theorists too…
And one of my personal favorites (best non-sequitur title ever):
Okay, whose graduate student is this?
In the same vein (with helpful eristic conclusion)
