To exist, or not to exist

A philosophy professor walks in to give his class their final. Placing his chair on his desk, the professor instructs the class: "Using every applicable thing you have learned in this course, prove to me that this chair DOES NOT EXIST."

So, pencils are writing and erasers are erasing, students are preparing to embark on novels proving that this chair doesn't exist, except for one student. He spends thirty seconds writing his answer, then turns in the paper, to the astonishment of his peers.

Time goes by, and finally the day comes when all the students get their final grades. To the amazement of the entire class, the student who wrote for thirty seconds gets the highest grade in the class.

His answer to the question: "What chair?"
