HEIDEGGER AND A HIPPO WALK THROUGH THOSE PEARLY GATES Using Philosophy (and Jokes!) to Explore Life, Death, the Afterlife, and Everything in Between

by | Read by Thomas Cathcart, Daniel Klein

Humor/ Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Who says philosophy can’t be funny? Pretty much everyone. But don’t tell Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein because they’ve made amusing, informative audiobooks that examine the big questions in life their little specialty. HEIDEGGER is a clever work dealing with those age-old mysteries: death and the afterlife. The guys perform the book themselves, and author narrations are always chancy. In this case, it’s a sure bet. The authors have a rapport that endears them to the listener. They often sound like a couple of Dutch uncles recounting old jokes and stories. But there’s a point to their stories, advice among the gags and examples that we can live by. This is also a book that works as a series of separate stories you’ll enjoy telling around the water cooler. M.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
