H.G. Frankfurt's "On Bullshit"

I was interested on picking up this book since I saw this professor interviewed on the Daily Show last night. Seems like a good read, very much in the vein of other structuralist critiques like Sontag's "On Camp".

Check out the interview video posted on line to get a feel for what the bullshit's all about.

Great clip; ordered the book. This guy's from an analytic philosophy background...not usually described as structuralist...but I'm reaching way back in order to satisfy my need to quibble. :)

I am happy that you are now a Daily Show viewer. Did you see John Stewart on Crossfire? It was the best TV I have ever seen.

I actually was watching the clips on the Princeton U Press site, but I do watch the Daily Show every so often.

That clip of JS on Crossfire is a total classic.
