Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)
Very few isms are actually beneficial and therefore worth remembering, but they will help you appreciate the manifold silliness of humanity in its quest to organize and explain itself. Do not become alarmed if we occasionally ridicule a sacred cow. Independent research has shown conclusively that cows don't give a hoot about being ridiculed. It is noteworthy that only TWO of the following isms can be attributed to women. The time has come for more women to conceive and organize their thinking in philosophical terms for the benefit of future generations. Click on any ism to see its definition.
