Alastair Brotchie, Stanley Chapman, Thieri Foulc & Kevin Jackson (eds.)

This “little green book” collects together citations concerning Pataphysics from existing works. Inclusion was based not upon the citation’s supposed veracity or otherwise, but only that it did not repeat what had already been proposed: 123 citations, 69 authors, translated from 6 languages.

One of our favourites is from Georges Perec:

If physics proposes: “You have a brother and he likes cheese,” then metaphysics replies: “If you have a brother, he likes cheese.” But ’Pataphysics says: “You don’t have a brother and he likes cheese.”

The London Institute of ’Pataphysics, Departmental Papers DDT1, 999 numbered copies.
