Horror of Horrors

I keep intending to mention things in posts and keep forgetting actually to do it. One thing I wanted to mention about the night with the Brett Philosophy Club was the funniest comment(s) on Malebranche I've ever heard, from an Anglican vicar:

(after I discussed Malebranche's view of causation)
"He's virtually a Calvinist!"

(a few minutes later as I explained, in response to a question, Malebranche's epistemology)
"Oh no! It's even worse! He's virtually a Barthian!"

Well, I thought it was funny. I guess you had to be there.
