In honor of Germany’s final game at the 2010 World Cup, let’s enjoy this classic 1970’s Monty Python skit on the occasion of the 1972 Olympics.
The German Philospher team:
Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Schelling, Beckenbauer!?! (Great German soccer player, not a philosopher, typical Monty Python choice) Jaspers, Schlegel, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche and Heidegger.
The Greek Philosopher team:
Plato, Epiktet, Aristoteles, Sophokles, Empedokles von Acraga, Plotin, Epikur, Heraklit, Demokrit, Sokrates and Archimedes.
Confuzius was the referee.
