Blackburn on Frankfurt’s On Truth

Simon Blackburn reviews Harry G. Frankfurt’s ‘OnTruth’ (in Powell’s Books in the The New Republic Online) and in the end finds it ‘Bullshit’
“And when I think of Frankfurt’s resolute silence about the philosophical tradition from, say, Protagoras onward, I confess to scenting a whiff of something like — well, negligence with the truth, an affectation of amateur carelessness adopted to mislead or manipulate the audience, and which therefore, by Frankfurt’s own account, characterizes the bullshitter.”
