Link Roundup

Why is tonight different from all other nights?

Because Jon Stewart will interview Harry Frankfurt about the new edition of his classic essay On Bullshit.

Today's posting will be light because I must stand in line for tickets.

In the meantime, enjoy the links:

Lindsay,

I just checked the listing and it my cable company has Krugman listed as being on tonight (on at least one of the showings). Are they both on the same show? Or are there multiple episodes on today?

Luka, check for the latest showing. At least in my area, the same-day show is on for the first time at 11 pm, and then is rebroadcast at 10 am and 7 pm the next day.

I watched! Did you get into the show?

I'm no philosopher, but I was unpersuaded by Frankfurt's thesis and find his definitions a little mushy and imprecise.

My take

  • here
  • .

    And Lindsay since you have a Johnny Cash shirt, there's also a little

  • review
  • of his work with Rick Rubin.


    paperwight,

    Thanks for the info. I just tivoed all of them. I'm gonig to go through them in a bit.

    I thought the interview was delightful, and that there's some philosophical grist worth milling in the discussion about where "spin" fits into Frankfurt's "bullshit" framework.
