A philosophy webcomic about the inevitable anguish of living a brief life in an absurd world. Also Jokes

Nietzsche Takes a Student

In Which Friedrich Nietzsche is a Fan of the Cleveland Browns

Also, Wagner is a Steelers fan and I'm rooting for them out of spite.

Man is the animal that watches stupid TV shows.

In Which Nietzsche Learns the True Meaning of Christmas

A true Übermensch spends Christmas miserable and alone, as everyone knows.

Nietzsche at the Bar

Nietzsche, later on, writing aphorisms: "Let's see, how you can express that you hate women in a way that sounds deep..."

Kant Goes to Poker Night

"Wait, but isn't stealing also wrong, according the the Categorical Imperative?" "Ah, common mistake, you are applying the maxim too broadly. The maxim of what we are doing isn't 'stealing', it is 'getting one over on Nietzsche', which as you know is not only morally permissible, but in fact a moral imperative."

Friedrich Nietzsche: Director of Human Resources

Eventually Nietzsche built his team of 100% Übermensches. It was a total disaster, of course, as everyone did their own thing. But obviously, it was all the fault of the slave morality of the consumers.

Nietzsche tries speed dating

"That which is done out of love always takes place beyond restraining orders." "It really doesn't, Nietzsche."

The Bar Fight

Although Sartre was obviously in bad faith when he said that Nietzsche has a terrible mustache, because come on.

Sorry! And the Nature of Suffering

It is better to not even begin playing the game, as it will only lead to suffering and misery. Plus, last time I played Hegel ended up winning, even though he totally didn't deserve it.

Silicon Valley Philosophy

Startup idea: it's like Uber, but for philosophy. You put in your location, and within 15 minutes a philosopher shows up to argue with you about the nature of justice. I call it Ubermensch

Existential Office

Eventually they figured out that Kafka was actually fired years ago, but due to a glitch in the payroll system he kept getting paid. So they fixed the glitch.

Dungeons & Dragons & Philosophers V: The Battle of Five Philosophers

And that was the day that Utilitarians, Objectivists, Communists, and Egoists all united as one: to kill Nietzsche. And also they told him that their group was really hardcore and didn't allow re-rolling characters, so once you died you had to wait outside and not talk.

The Most Ubermensch Man in the World

Stay willful, my friends.

Stoicism Man

"So...can you help me get my purse back? I really loved that purse." "Woman's love involves injustice and blindness against everything that she does not love... Woman is not yet capable of friendship: women are still cats and birds. Or at best cows..."

Mad Philosophy

Schopenhauer was chosen only because he's just really got that mad scientist look. I think it's the hair
