Ohiosphere Tale Of The Day II: German Philosophy In The Funnypages

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Toledo's HistoryMike has captured thoroughly mindbending images by serving up Nietzsche In The Family Circus. He's found a place straight from the zany margins, where words from the German philosopher are matched to panels from the American comic strip. A complete mix of high and low culture. No scholarly cobwebs. Just brightly illuminating and hilarious at the same time.

As Friedrich Nietzsche himself might say, the Ohiosphere's Michael Brooks has discovered "a drug of the worst sort, especially dangerous to a nation given to hard drinking and one that vaults intellectual ferment for its power both to intoxicate the mind and befog it."
