The Laughing Philosopher

Here Democritus, in the the spirit of the Cynics, like Diogenes, and later the Happy Tutor, cures the father of medicine, Hippocrates, of his seriousness. Convinced that the whole world is mad, the physician, the Father of Therapy, laughs folly to scorn, including himself in the hilarity. So the physician heals himself. Have we made any progress since then? Yes! Therapists now accept credit cards. (Democritus means "beloved by the people." The common rabble has always liked to laugh at their betters.)
