    Is Aristophanes a philosopher?

    Well, he did pontificate on the nature of love in Plato's Symposium, so he did apparently venture into philosophy... at least when he was wasted.

    Yeah, and The Clouds is pretty great. But...grrr...

    Such a difficult problem!

    Is Aristophanes a philosopher?

    From Wikipedia:
    Dirty jokes: A relaxation in standards of behaviour was permitted and the holiday spirit included bawdy irreverence towards both men and gods.[124] Old Comedy is rich in obscenities and the crude jokes are often very detailed, as when the Chorus in The Acharnians places a curse on Antimachus,[125] a choregus accused of niggardly conduct, wishing upon him a night-time mugging as he returns home from some drunken party and envisioning him, as he stoops down to pick up a rock in the darkness, accidentally picking up a fresh turd instead. He is then envisioned hurling the turd at his attacker, missing and accidentally hitting Cratinus, a lyric poet not admired by Aristophanes.[126] This was particularly funny because the curse was sung (or chanted) in choreographed style by a Chorus of 24 grown men who were otherwise known to the audience as respectable citizens.

    The guy wrote poop jokes. I think that makes him a philosopher.

    Philosopher or not, I think we all need to remember what Aristophanes' greatest accomplishment was: he invented flipping people off.

    Because I'm organizing my bookshelf, and I can't decide if Greek plays are included in philosophy. I don't want to include Dante, but if I include Aristophanes then I have to include Ovid, and if Ovid then Dante.

    If I don't include the Greek poets, then I can completely keep out literature. But, then, do mathematical texts count as philosophy? They seem more philosophical than poems, but they aren't technically mathematics.

    It's a very important problem.

    IS that the guy in your Avatar and Sig, Jacob? It doesn't look like the guy on the Wikipedia page to me, not exactly but... the quote fits with him, i think?

    yes, that is him.
    The basics: Flex Mentallo is a miniseries by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, published by DC Comics/Vertigo from June-Sept. of 1996. The two major characters of the work, Flex Mentallo and Wallace Sage, had initially appeared in 1991, in the pages of Morrison and Richard Case's Doom Patrol (although the Wallace Sage that initially appeared differs significantly from both the Wally that appears in the Flex comic book and the Wally that is described in Flex Mentallo's text pages).

    42_small.jpg

    Flex Mentallo is not merely Grant Morrison's creation, however: he is also a reiteration of the 20th-century mass-market Hercules, Charles Atlas. Charles Atlas plays an important role in superhero comic books, the final step in identification; while superhero comics narrate physicality and power in the form of the hero, Charles Atlas packages this power into a commodity that the reader can, presumably, access and utilize.

    In Doom Patrol the "Secret Origin of Flex Mentallo" is a pastiche, a direct homage to the Charles Atlas "myth" (it is, at many points, nearly identical to "The Insult that Made a Man out of 'Mac'") which is seasoned with the surrealist flavor that came to characterize Doom Patrol. Flex is "Mac" made superhuman; he is then, indirectly, an emblem of the reader's investment in and identification with the superhero comic.

    Atlas represents two ideas, seemingly conflicting, that are major themes in Flex: a) that superhero comic books are essentially product, debris, inseparable from their presence as stuff; they are consumed and then left as a constant reminder of "junk culture"; b) that superhero comic books are potentially transformative, that they engage in a multilayered system of representation and crossover that, in the end, implicates even the reader.

    ...

    While Crisis on Infinite Earths diminished the multivocality of DC Comics, other texts were complicating the superhero as a character type; "graphic novels" like Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns reconceived the superhero as an often tortured, morally ambiguous and sometimes violent figure. Characters like Marvel's Punisher and Wolverine became popular as readers responded to a more flawed, brooding, anti-heroic (Byronic?) sort of character.

    Flex the character and Flex Mentallo the series display Morrison's protest against these trends in superhero comics as an ongoing medium. Flex is hyperbolically superheroic, almost a caricature: he "fights crime with a smile" and enjoys milk at the local bar. However, other characters in Flex Mentallo, after overcoming their initial skepticism, often react to this attitude with deference, respect, gratitude--they seem refreshed by it. Flex absorbs the obvious critique he provokes and moves his "readers" beyond it; he represents Morrison's argument for a space beyond critique. Even as Flex the character promotes a revised approach to the superhero, Flex Mentallo presents a new multivocality as a superhero comic book; crossover and play are brought to the fore as numerous levels of representation, of "textuality," are juggled and blended in a celebration of multilinear narrative.

    I am in so much pain

    had to mow the lawn when I got home from work as everything is growing like mad and I can't put it off till the weekend again. stuff was so thick it took 2 hours to mow and had to push manually because the speed at which the mower pulls itself along was fast enough that it couldn't handle the grass and would die.

    normally this wouldn't be a problem but before I started there was something wrong with a knot of muscle in the small of my back. Aparently this muscle is used for absolutely anything involving pushing, pulling or (especially) restarting a mower after every 10 feet when it chokes on too much grass again.

    In all seriousness, the only reason I haven't read FM yet is because I couldn't find it locally, and I was waiting for the trade to come out.
