The History of Philosophy From the Perspective of Chicken Enchiladas

Thales, 500 BC: "Wait a minute, what the heck even are chicken enchiladas? They are probably just secretly made of water or something."

Plato, 300 BC: "Chicken enchiladas aren't even real, man. What's real is the concept of chicken enchiladas."

Avicenna, 1000: "You see, God created chicken enchiladas, but he didn't have to. He could have never done it. God is good."

Descartes, 1600: "What if none of this was real? What if we are just being tricked into thinking there are chicken enchiladas by an evil daemon? Although...not that evil."

Hume, 1750: "what if we woke up tomorrow and chicken enchiladas no longer tasted good? Shit, that would freakin' suck, man."
