An analysis of what bullshit is, and what it isn't.

From page 55: "It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he knows the truth. Producing bullshit requires no such conviction." :p

I'm so glad you've found this book!

Please take a moment to make a journal entry and let this book's previous readers know that it's safe with you.

How and where did you find the book? What did you think of it? What are you going to do with it next?

It's now your book, for you to do with as you please: keep it, pass it to a friend, or maybe even leave it where someone else can find it!

If you've ever wondered where your books go after they leave your hands, join BookCrossing and you may find out: you'll be able to follow the further adventures of your books as new readers make journal entries - sometimes from surprisingly far-flung locations.

(Think of it like Where's George for books: a little like geocaching or a treasure hunt - you can follow a registered book's journey every time someone makes a new entry. Some BookCrossers even leave books *in* geocaches!)

This book came to me in the bookbox while I was at my Mother's house. I have been dealing with a lot of bullshit here, so I will read it on the way home. 


Journal Entry 7 by wing6of8wing at Syracuse, Utah USA on Thursday, August 17, 2017

5 out of 10

A much more academic and philosophical discussion of the subject than I had expected. I thought it was interesting that the author classified the truth-teller and the liar as both being committed to the truth (one in favor and one against, but both aware of what the truth was) as opposed to the bullshitter, who really doesn't care if what he is saying is the truth or a lie. And we ended up at the current state of things, where it is more important to tell the truth about how you feel something is, than about how something actually is.
