Matthew Fletcher on Bullshit and the Tribal Clients (Fletcher論Bullshit and the Tribal Clients)

我是從Lawrence Solum教授的Legal Theory Blog中看見這一篇文章的(Solum教授的轉載在此!),Matthew Fletcher在SSRN上面發表了一篇文章:Bullshit and the Tribal Clients,探討胡說八道(bullshit,這個翻譯的適切性或許可以檢討一下)與部落當事人等議題。這一篇文章其實沒有看完,但是純粹是被議題所吸引!雖然,我們對於英文的bullshit或許會覺得是個負面評價的詞彙,但是本篇文章所引用的Harry Frankfurt的小書:On Bullshit,也是很推薦一讀的!這本小書頁數不多,但是討論bullshit是非常精湛的!區分了胡說八道與說謊之間的關係。而Frankfurt對於bullshit的說明,或許可以見諸這句話:It is just this lack of connection to a concern with truth- this indifference to how things really are- that I regard as of the essence of bullshit.
