On Bullshit

Is it daring to title a philosophical book as such? I don't know.

Speaking of PUP turning 100—PUP is also the publisher of On Bullshit by the noted American philosopher, Harry Frankfurt, emeritus professor at Princeton University.

In addition, PUP is hosting an interview with Frankfurt that may be of interest to you. I cannot listen to it from where I'm sitting now but plan to check it out later tonight.

Kevin Lim has a playful review of On Bullshit.

The Atlantic Monthly did a nice review of this book a while ago. I flippped through it in the local bookstore and---though it is a bit unorthodox in its subject matter, the ornate style can be a put-off after a couple of pages...

I've also seen the reviews (not the one by Atlantic Monthly) and saw the essay published both in a larger volume and its new "ornate" release, which is quite at odds with the topic!!!
