Cheap lolz, swashbuckling romance and essay crises

Jenny is a frighteningly bright Philosophy student, Tim is her flirtatious slacker of a flatmate. Come here to follow the life adventures of these two absolutely not stereotypical Cambridge students. You'll learn very little in the process, but I'll get better at watercolour.

On the shoulders of giants

BONUS GAMES: Name that Philosopher! Level of difficulty: 1.


  1. Kant
    Not sure, I would say... Hegel? I thought it might be Rousseau, but then, master, slave...
    Epicure (argh, not sure on that one)
    Hannah Arendt
    Sartre (il est moins moche sur ton dessin... :p )
    Et Simone of course! :D

    Really cool cartoon this week, I LOVE these games! :)

  2. BTW, I hope the prize is a introduction with Tim!

  3. Yeah, I'm sure that's Hegel (the little lace on his shirt is the same on my edition). Still not sure about Epicure, though.

  5. yep 8/8 my dear, but being an ex-prépa you'll only start finding it tricky at level 9 or 10 :)

  6. YEAH! >>>>

    You mean there will be more games?! :D Although I'm not that confident on my abilities to recognise them - I wouldn't recognise Althusser if he came into my room at night to strangle me -, I'm so looking forward to it!

  7. !!!!???!!!!
    I was -->LITERALLY<-- planning on putting Althusser in the next one xD

  8. "if he came into my room at night to strangle me" HA

  9. Well, I think we just invented literal TELE-pathy (actually, I was just trying to make a bad taste joke and Althusser was kind of ovious).

    Just put a funnel on his head. We'll get it. :p

  10. Wow lots of boxes! Exciting! I blame my education for my lack of philosophy knowledge :( (but I can learn from this comic!) xx
