Poems of Love and Logic

Having low self-esteem is bad.

Having a small ego is good.

But self-esteem = ego.

Is having a big ego good?


Objectivism is the philosophy of Ayn Rand.

Ayn Rand was human and therefore fallible.

But Objectivism = The Truth.

Truth can't be false, therefore, The Truth is infallible.

Can Objectivism be added to, by someone not named Ayn Rand, if she were wrong about something?


How many different names for the elements of logical syntax can the philosophy professors define?

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?


The philosophy professors don't take Ayn Rand seriously.

Ayn Rand is a plausible interpretation of Aristotle.

Aristotle and Plato are the foundation of (Western) philosophy, and that is a historical fact.

Therefore the philosophy professors don't take philosophy seriously.
