That's Amore...of knowledge

For those of you who fell asleep during Philosophy class or opted out…a quick primer

Sung to the tune of “That’s Amore.”

“When Kant wanted to show that in experience you know
it’s aposterori…

When you know it innate, and there’s no physical state
it’s a priori.”

Berkley and friend Hume say all knowledge’s presumed
Being’s just your mind’s story. (It’s a story).

And Socrates and Plato
Said we just know we don’t know
As we sit on the cave floore.

When you debate what is Truth,
are killed for corrupting the Youth
You love knowledge. (You love Knowledge).

When you argue about Elliatics
and you feel dramatic
You’re in college. (You’re in college).

When you think this is all there is
and the sky is the limit
You’re called a realist. (a realist).

But for me can’t you see such a bleak world
It has no appealist.

Happy Saint Joseph’s Day!
May he and all people of Italian descent forgive me, including my children and husband.

I had writer’s block, this was the best I could do.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
