What Passes For Humour Among Philosophers

I came across something to start my day with a laugh (or at least a wry smile) as I browsed the various feeds I’m subscribed to. Unfortunately I can’t give credit to the referrer since I’ve forgotten who it was. (I know … only an hour or two ago but that’s a problem of ME/CFS).

So what amused me? A list of how various philosophical terms are understood inside and outside the profession. I really do need to get a life!

David Chalmers, the author, has pages of similar humour.
