About the Author

Thomas Cathcart

Tom Cathcart spent most of his career in health care, including directing a boarding home for people with HIV/AIDS in Portland, Maine. His old college pal, Danny Klein, enlisted him as co-author of a book about how jokes can illuminate philosophical ideas. To their shock, after being rejected by 40 publishers, "Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar" became an international bestseller. Two more joint books followed. Now Cathcart has published his first solo effort, "The Trolley Problem, or Would You Throw the Fat Guy Off the Bridge? " Tom is married to Eloise Balasco Cathcart, who coordinates the graduate program in nursing administration at NYU.
