Bruces' Philosophy Song Lyrics

Artist: Monty Python
Album: Live At The Hollywood Bowl

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table.

David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel,

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.

There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya
'Bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

Plato, they say, could stick it away--
Half a crate of whiskey every day.

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle.
Hobbes was fond of his dram,

And Ren Descartes was a drunken fart.
'I drink, therefore I am.'

Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed.

David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel,

In some versions they sing something lik

David Hume could out-consume
Georg Friedrich Hegel,
(or good old Friedrich Hegel)

there is a lot of contention between;

Schopenhauer and Hegel


Schopenhauer and Hegel

depending on the version of the song

I wrote "I'm pink therefore I'm spam." and "I am whatever you say I am, if I wasn't then why would I say I am." and "Everything is physics, but physics isn't everything." ...

Come on... at least spell Rene Descartes name right!
And I was taught the version with "Schopenhauer and Hegel" from a philosophy professor who saw the Pythons do the skit live!

There are two versions: one with 'Schopenhauer and Hegel' and one with 'Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel.' Both are canonical/correct/OK.

Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could drink you under the table. Well, at least at the Hollywood Bowl. :)
