In response to Chris's comment in a recent post, wishing that more philosophers could be schematized much like Alex did with Kant in his Critical Flowchart, I offer the following. It's been floating around the Internet for ages, but I remembered it when reading the post below.

Their own ideas, in their own words, neatly honed into little half-hour or so reads.

    i've been reading hume this eveing and have reached section 7 - just about a third of the way thru. this leads me to conclude that it cannot be done in a single sitting. but then again i didnt attempt it in the afternoon - maybe those are the magic hours when this feat is possible. or perhaps i should of infered from the habit of experience that i have never managed to read any book of philosophy in an afternoon and therefore that this feat wasn't possible for me anyway...
