And now for something completely different:
The Germans are disputing it! Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-analytic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming that it was offside. But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle, it’s all over! Germany, having trounced England’s midfield trio of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes in the semi-final, have been beaten by the odd goal.
