Well, that’s one way to get more women into the canon…

Last week, we told you about the strange phenomenon of philosophical porn sites. Perhaps that post has sparked in you an unquenchable passion for a juxtaposition of sexy images and philosophical discussion? Fear not. Relief awaits.

This week, BuzzFeed Books (now, that’s an odd idea, isn’t it) has revived a 2011 Ayashii World discussion of Me, Tsundere and Heidegger, a 2011 ranobe (light novel for youth) in which a misogynist is reincarnated as a high school girl and gets schooled in philosophy by sexy (anime) schoolgirl versions of Descartes, Spinoza, Berkeley, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger.

My thanks(ish) to four (!) friends who separately (!) posted links about this on my Facebook wall because they felt that I urgently needed to see the sexy bookworm Lolita version of Spinoza, pictured below. (Apologies in advance.)

  1. At the risk of sounding kind of prudish, I do wish that the racy image of sexy spinoza had been hidden under the fold of the blogpost. This way I can visit femphilosophers without feeling kind of yucky, especially if I am in my office eating my lunch. I really do love this blog, but I’d hate to feel like I can’t read it during my lunch break in case a student walks by and sees this picture while I am eating my cheese sandwich.

    That’s my two bits anyays.
