I studied Philosophy at University, specifically ethics.
So one of the main philosophers in that area is Kant
My philosophy tutor was a Professor from Germany who had a very thick German accent.
I used to attend a seminar every Monday morning, often late and often suffering the effects of a wild weekend.
He would greet me sarcastically by saying:
"Ah, John. I imagine you have been wrestling with Kant all weekend"
I imagine bi-lingual German speakers will get the comedy in this statement
