The Categorical Aperitif

Emmanual Kant
“Kant apparently lived a very strict and disciplined life; it was said that neighbors would set their clocks by his daily walks… Kant believed that his paternal grandfather Hans Kant was of Scottish origin.”
Hickory dickory
Kant the Philosopher,
known to be useful for
setting a watch,
never imbibed during
discourses, though he was
partial to Scotch.


GWF Hegel   
“Hegel’s ‘absolute’ philosophy represents an arrogant claim, not merely to the discovery of truth, but to the instantiation of it… in Hegel’s view, spirit comes to its final resting-place when he, Hegel, understands the nature of reality.”—Dialectics of Labour, by  C. J. Arthur
Hegel the Heavyweight
read every volume on
every last shelf.
Though he was chock-full of                                            
knowledge, some say he was
full of himself.
