December #1 - ON BULLSHIT

Title: On Bullshit

Author: Harry G. Frankfurt

Publisher: Princeton University Press

Copyright: 2005

ISBN: 0-691-12294-6

Series or stand-alone: Non-fiction

1st Sentence:

One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit.


The only reason I read this book was because it came across my desk as a book that I was sending out through interlibrary loan and it was short and I remembered all the fuss it received when it first came out. Normally I would not read this type of book. And probably won't again.

The author note says he is a renowned moral philosopher and a Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at Princeton University. My dad is a degreed philosopher and he is one of the biggest bullshitters I know.

Want to guess what my opinion was of this book?
