Pooh and the Philosophers
|Author||John Tyerman Williams|
Pooh and the Philosophers is a 1995 book by John Tyerman Williams, purporting to show how all of Western philosophy from the last 3,000 years was a long preparation for Winnie the Pooh. It was published in 1995 by Dutton in the United States and by Methuen in the United Kingdom, using A. A. Milne's fictional bear Winnie-the-Pooh, and is both humorous and intellectual.
The first chapter, entitled "What this book is about" the author explains how philosophy fits into Pooh. Then, throughout the rest of the book Williams explains a number of philosophical theories using many different Pooh quotations such as René Descartes's "I think therefore I am" and takes them down to a very simple level.
