Western Philosophy

Socrates is oft and widely credited for laying the foundation of Western philosophy. If his dialectic method is the foundation, can Kant's "critical philosophy" be said to be the eyeshadow, and Freud's psychoanalysis the lip gloss? What then constitutes the eyeliner and colored contact lenses, Hegel and Jung? Are Derrida and Nietzche the rebellious g-string and clit piercing?

More importantly, is western philosophy a tramp of the streets, or merely a confused young woman cursed with a gaudy fashion sense?

western philosophy i think is, in essence, a horrible, horrible combination of pamela anderson and mary-kate olsen.
