Pooh Bear quizzes quissity and quiddity

"On Wednesday, when the sky is blue,
And I have nothing else to do,
I sometimes wonder if it’s true
That who is what and what is who."
A. A. Milne Winnie-the-Pooh 

How come Pooh gets it, but super-smart scientists and perfectly logical philosophers don't?


  1. Michael I have another doubt:
    On monday, when the sky is grey
    And I have a lot of thing to watch
    I sometime wonder what would say
    What is my thesis and my thesis is what?

    1. Since Pooh is a Bear of Very Little Brain, he would have some trouble responding to your conundrum, Alvaro.
