Some brief overview of this book

Having outlined a theory of bullshit and falsehood, Harry G. Frankfurt turns to what lies beyond them the truth, a concept not as obvious as some might expect. Our cultures devotion to bullshit may seem much stronger than our apparently halfhearted attachment to truth.

Some people (professional thinkers) wont even acknowledge true and false as meaningful categories, and even those who claim to love truth cause the rest of us to wonder whether they, too, arent simply full of it. Practically speaking, many of us deploy the truth only when absolutely necessary, often finding alternatives to be more saleable, and yet somehow civilization seems to be muddling along. But where are we headed?

Is our fast and easy way with the facts actually crippling us? Or is it all good? Really, whats the use of truth, anyway?

With the same leavening wit and commonsense wisdom that animates his pathbreaking work On Bullshit, Frankfurt encourages us to take another look at the truth there may be something there that is perhaps too plain to notice but for which we have a mostly unacknowledged yet deep-seated passion. His book will have sentient beings across America asking, The truthwhy didnt I think of that?
