S&F and Philosophy Now – “Camus & the Myth of Sisyphus”

This piece was published in the Camus issue of Philosophy Now.

Bonus for S&F followers!  The Easter Egg in the strip (where easter egg refers to the gamer term for a hidden message or joke) is that the song they are singing at the end is the refrain for.. click here to find out!  🙂

S&F in Philosophy Now – “The Self”

This cartoon was published in the August issue of Philosophy Now.  This issue focused on how we define the idea of ‘self’, which was an interesting question to think about.

So, how would you define self?  🙂

S&FPhilosophy&MediaThis 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

MetaMimosa1 MetaMimosa2 MetaMimosa3 MetaMimosa4Hey gang,

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

Cohen1 Cohen2 Cohen3 Cohen4Last 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!!

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!
