A professor emeritus of philosophy at Princeton University, Harry G. Frankfurt penned a surprise smash hit with his New York Times best seller On Bullshit, which insightfully and wittily captured the human capacity for, and tendency toward, BS. Now he examines the other side of the coin with this equally entertaining and provocative follow-up.

As Frankfurt showed previously, bullshit lies within the realm of subjective perception. Truth, then, is what we find beyond this realm. But are we, as a people, willing to allow ourselves to be governed by honest principles? Could it be possible that we lack the commitment to acting morally and truthfully?

Using his trademark skill at sharing philosophical insights with a general audience, Frankfurt examines these and other questions in this informative audiobook.

    " Not as challenging or as boisterous as "On Bullshit," but Frankfurt lays down a solid foundation for truth as the cornerstone of a personal philosophy. At its core he states that humans rarely look at themselves and their circumstances in a forthright and truthful manner and this in turn causes us distress. I can see readers misenterpereting this as a light self-help book, but there is some good elementary and utilitarian philosophy here. "

    " concise, common language, common sense arguments for the value of truth. Though, it was actually about the value of specific truths rather than truth itself, and Frankfurt's attempt to consolidate the two left much to be desired. "

    " I love this philosopher. Clear, to the point, you could mistake much of what he says for obvious, but it isn't, precisely because it seems to be. Have you ever thought about why truth is important, and why it is important that we believe it exists, and actively look for it? "

    " Very common sense look at the truth, but something everyone should revist now an again. Quick easy read. "
