The Philosophy of Kant

Next Wednesday, in meeting room 4C, Toiletoverflowing will present the next in his series of philosophy lectures. This time, he will dissect the philosophy of Kant.

Next Wednesday’s lecture will be somewhat unique for Toiletoverflowing in that it will be divided into three segments. Attendees will be served milk and cookies in the intermissions. Participants will also be encouraged to take brief naps during these breaks.

In the first part of the lecture Toiletoverflowing will present an overview of the philosophy of Kant. He will focus on the extreme negativity of the Kant viewpoint.

During the middle segment, Toiletoverflowing will question why so many philosophers, philosophy students, philosophers’ biographers and others insist on misspelling the word as “Kant.”

In the final part of his lecture, Toiletoverflowing will discuss opposing philosophies. In particular, he will examine one philosophy that he believes is the polar opposite of the Kant philosophy, namely the Can philosophy.

In this segment, Toiletoverflowing will present a case study that shows how the Can philosophy was put to practical use in real-life. This study will demonstrate how the philosophy was effectively employed by the Barack Obama campaign to win the 2008 United States Presidential election using the slogan, “Yes we can.”

We’re fortunate to have such a great philosophy scholar as Toiletoverflowing in Shalampax to help us to understand the Kant philosophy or, as Toiletoverflowing prefers to spell it, the Can’t philosophy.

    In the US, the Kant philosophy is Republican. It is also called the no, won’t, don’t and to hell with you mainstreet people philosophy.

    @Gary Anderson: The “the no, won’t, don’t and to hell with you mainstreet people philosophy” sounds like exceptionally lazy people. If so, these Republicans you speak of would probably be quite comfortable in Shalampax. (Except, of course, for our custom of eating foreigners. Are Republicans usually tasty?)
