THE PHILOSOPHY TEACHER AND DE CHAIR

An eccentric philosophy teacher gave a one question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad range of topics. The class was already seated and ready to start when the teacher pick up his chair, put it on top of his desk and wrote on the board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist."

Everybody started racking their brains and filling pages like crazy, some students wrote more than 30 pages attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One of the students however, was finished in less than one minute.

Weeks later, when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at all. When everybody asked him what he wrote in the exam, his answer was: "¿What chair?"



The answer you are looking for might be simpler than you think.
