Weaver, Afaa Michael

Pittsburgh. 2017. February 2017. University of Pittsburgh Press. Uncorrected Proof. Very Good in Wrappers. ISBN:9780822964582. Pitt Poetry Series. 112 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Afaa Michael Weaver is one of the most significant poets writing today. With its blend of Chinese spiritualism and American groundedness, his poetry presents the reader (and the listener, for his body of work is meant to be read aloud) with challenging questions about identity, about how physicality and spirit act together or counteract each other to shape who we are in the world.’ —Henry Louis Gates for Baltimore Magazine. ‘Weaver explores and rethinks questions of identity-that great American subject. Over the years, he has listened to a chorus of other voices, the inflections of the past, as they have come together to shape and enlarge his own distinctive, musical voice. He has carved a unique space for himself in contemporary American poetry.’ —Edward Hirsch on Timber and Prayer. inventory #42040 ISBN: 9780822964582.

Frankfurt, Harry G

Princeton. 2005. Princeton University Press. Reprinted Edition. Very Good in Hardcover. No Dustjacket As Issued. ISBN:9780691122946. 80 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bullshit and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bullshit is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves. And we lack a conscientiously developed appreciation of what it means to us. In other words, as Harry Frankfurt writes, ‘we have no theory.’ Frankfurt, one of the world's most influential moral philosophers, attempts to build such a theory here. With his characteristic combination of philosophical acuity, psychological insight, and wry humor, Frankfurt proceeds by exploring how bullshit and the related concept of humbug are distinct from lying. He argues that bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all. Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant. Frankfurt concludes that although bullshit can take many innocent forms, excessive indulgence in it can eventually undermine the practitioner's capacity to tell the truth in a way that lying does not. Liars at least acknowledge that it matters what is true. By virtue of this, Frankfurt writes, bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are. REVIEWS: ‘[Frankfurt] tries, with the help of Wittgenstein, Pound, St. Augustine and the spy novelist Eric Ambler, among others, to ask some of the preliminary questions--to define the nature of a thing recognized by all but understood by none. What is bullshit, after all? Mr. Frankfurt points out it is neither fish nor fowl. Those who produce it certainly aren't honest, but neither are they liars, given that the liar and the honest man are linked in their common, if not identical, regard for the truth.’--Peter Edidin, New York Times. ‘The scholar who answers the question, 'What is bullshit?' bids boldly to define the spirit of the present age. Frankfurt's conclusion. is that bullshit is defined not so much by the end product as by the process by which it is created. Eureka! Frankfurt's definition is one of those not-at-all-obvious insights that become blindingly obvious the moment they are expressed.’--Timothy Noah, Slate. ‘Immediately, I must say: read it. Beautifully written, lucid, ironic and profound, it is a model of what philosophy can and should do. It is a small and highly provocative masterpiece, and I really don't think I am bullshitting you here.’--Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times (London). ‘This is what the world has long needed. Bullshit is now such a dominant feature of our culture that most of us are confident we can recognize and rebuff it. But Frankfurt shows the reader just how insidious (and destructive) it can be. This book will change your life.’--Leopold Froehlich, Playboy. ‘Frankfurt's book should be required reading for anyone whose speech or writing are intended for public consumption. Despite his subject, he is definitely not full of it.’--Kevin Wood, The Daily Yomiuri. inventory #41930 ISBN: 9780691122946.
