P.S. This week’s cartoon was inspired by a visit to the art treasures at the Royal Ontario Museum. A simultaneously inspiring and humbling experience. 🙂

Media memory loss
This is a rejected Philosophy Now submission from back in March intended to accompany an article around philosophy and the media. Looking back, the drawing and the writing could have been better, I was tired when I did this one. That said, I still agree with the premise of superficiality of most news stories – perhaps an S&F topic for another time.
Happy long weekend everyone!
Philosophy Now Reject Pile – No. 2
As promised, here is the last cartoon that was submitted to Philosophy Now! for Issue 94 (you can see the accepted cartoon here).
I think Simon got a little too nerdy in this one, however I love the idea of meta-mimosas… 🙂
Next week we’ll be back to Simon & Finn’s regular, coffee-fueled antics.
Thanks for reading!
Philosophy Now Reject Pile – No. 1
Last week, Simon & Finn were published in the UK journal Philosophy Now! That issue dealt with the idea of philosophy and literature. As well as I could understand it, there are some that believe philosophy is best expressed in a clear and almost mathematical manner, and others who feel a more literary or even poetic approach has just as much to offer.
I thought I’d show you guys some of the other cartoons that were submitted for the issue. This one was actually my favourite but the editor thought it might be too obscure. I think he was right, hence why he’s the editor of course! 🙂
Anyway, I’ll have one more reject to show you next week, and then we’ll resume normal programming.
Thanks for reading!!
Simon & Finn visit Philosophy Now!
This week’s Simon & Finn brought to you courtesy of Philosophy Now!
The latest issue looks at the intersection of philosophy and literature. The next issue will explore communicating philosophy, so if you have ideas for cartoons, I’m taking suggestions!
