Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates

Using Philosophy (and Jokes!) to Explore Life, Death, the Afterlife, and Everything in Between
  • By Thomas Cathcart
  • By Daniel Klein
$10.99
($15.00)

Q. Why are there almost as many jokes about death as there are about sex?

A. Because they both scare the pants off us.
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein first made a name for themselves with the outrageously funny New York Times bestseller 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, Cathcart and Klein 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 Gates is a must-read for anyone and everyone who ever expects to die.
And now, you can read Daniel Klein's further musings on life and philosophy in Travels with Epicurus and Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change it.
