'A guide to living with your philosopher'

Doubtless a number of you have already discovered the fine blog philosiology. It offers outstanding advice to those struggling to live with a philosopher:
Being related in some way to a philosopher can be scary. They enter a world of dialectic and really hard, boring stuff that you do not understand and/or have no desire to understand. This is a guide to help you learn how to relate to your philosopher and, in the end, to learn how to love and live with them peacefully.
Some recent entries:
  • Thought Experiments
  • Buying Gifts for Philosophers: Dos and Don'ts
  • Colloquia and Philosophy Talks
  • Living with your Philosopher: Incessant Questioning
Anyway, it's wonderful funny stuff!


  1. Oh my goodness that's awesome. Thanks for sharing. I definitely know of a couple people that'll be interested in looking it over. :)

  2. Just read some to my husband, who appreciates it. I think we might develop a "safe sentence" now. Sigh. I don't know how they put up with us but I'm glad they do. I don't want to find hemlock in my cereal.

  3. Someone should try and explain how to live with a non-philosopher. After 42 years I still cannot convince my wife that the Ontological Argument is a brilliant, albeit seriously flawed, bit of reasoning. She regards metaphysics and epistemology as 'mental masturbation.' Life is tough:-)Thank goodness I spend most of my time doing ethics and political philosophy.
