Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates
Featuring Freud! Groucho Marx! Socrates! Lily Tomlin! Kierkegaard! Buddha! New Yorkercartoonists! Zombies! And of course, Heidegger!
Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart first made a name for themselves with the outrageously funny New York Timesbestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar. Now they turn their attention to the Big D and share the timeless wisdom of the great philosophers, theologians, psychotherapists and wiseguys.
From angels to zombies and everything in between, Klein and Cathcart offer a fearless and irreverent history of how we approach death, why we embrace life, and whether there really is a hereafter.
As hilarious as it is enlightening, Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gatesis a must-read for anyone and everyone who ever expects to die.
