The links in this post remind me of the dangers of cynicism. Maud has an entry on a review of On Bullshit by Harry Frankfurt. It is easy to appear wise by saying that someone is spinning public persception of himself. It is easy to say that something true is obvious or that a disagreement is wildly ridiculous. And what does it do? The hard road is believing, loving, and reasoning. I think we live in a vulgar time, and we will not step out of it through moral philosophy like this.
