Keep your feet on the ground, but your head about you!

It’s a little-known fact that John Dewey, the father of Pragmatism, started his career as ‘the midnight philosopher’, a lab assistant for Victor Frankenstein. (He didn’t have the ‘stache yet, you will note. He grew that later, to cover his exit shortly before the mob with the torches and pitchforks showed. But the resemblance is unmistakable.)

I don’t know… I don’t remember him with such a great head of lustrous black hair…

Is that a Wally Wood cover?!

Working the graveyard shift in the philosophy department is a thankless task, but someone has to do it.

Nope, not Wally Wood. But obviously heavily influenced by his style.

And I guess that must be Jane Addams next to him. Quite a team.
