Terry Pratchett rethought as philosopher in new study.

This isn't exactly surprising. There's always been a strong philosophical undercurrent to Pratchett's work.

I must admit, I was rather amused by the pullout quote on the Guardian's Facebook link:

“One of the recurring philosophical questions is: ‘Does a falling tree in the forest make a sound when there is no one to hear?’ Which says something about the nature of philosophers, because there is always someone in a forest. It may only be a badger, wondering what that cracking noise was, or a squirrel a bit puzzled by all the scenery going upwards, but someone.”
