Frankfurt on bullshit.

"How would our culture change without BS in it?"
Franfurt: "It would be a lot quiter... Hm. I don't know how it would be different, appart from the fact that a lot of people would find it difficult to say anything."

Sincerity (earnestness) vs. facts (observations). Or morality vs. objectivity.

Harry Gordon Frankfurt is a professor emeritus of philosophy at Princeton University. He previously taught at Yale University and Rockefeller University. His major areas of interest include moral philosophy, philosophy of mind and action, and 17th century rationalism. His 1986 paper On Bullshit, a philosophical investigation of the concept of "bullshit", was republished as a book in 2005 and became a surprise bestseller.
