    One thought on “Half-Truths and One-and-a-Half Truths: Selected Aphorisms”

    1. 3 stars only for some really pungent aphorism Psychoanalysis is that mental illness for which it regards itself as therapy The psychoanalyst is a father confessor who lusts to listen also to the sins of the father Christian morality prefers remorse to precede lust, and then lust not to follow.

    2. Kraus was a satirist of Viennese culture in the first third of the 20th century Wittgenstein was a great fan of his, which is why I know about him While I shelved this book under Humor, that would have to include black humor He generally made fun of things, which wasn t necessarily funny He operated much like Jon Stewart using direct quotes from people to show their absurdity or hypocrisy This book, however, is a collection of his aphorisms This is a style that influenced Wittgenstein, but is al [...]

    3. Sometimes, Kraus just appears to be this lonesome loner, loathing the legions and serieses of L s and ill locations of grammar Sabi nya somewhere here I and my public understand each other very well it does not hear what I say and I don t say what it wants to hear Also I trim my opponents to fit my arrows How out of his mind is he Is he too out of his mind that perhaps alam mo yun, di nya lang alam he s really inside his mind Both the weakness and strength of aphorisms, this cough of its length [...]

    4. Well, it felt like a great introduction Pithy, biting, smart, sarcastic What s not to like I ve been waiting for Kraus to be available, but then, alas, when it finally arrived it had Franzen s ego all over it So I opted for this fun, quick intro instead And now I recommend it to you.

    5. Karl Kraus hit the nail on the head An aphorism never coincides with the truth it is either a half truth or one and a half truths Overall, this is a pretty nice collection from one of the great satirical aphorists.

    6. Not actually reading Actually reading Half Truths What s right and wrong with the cliches you and I live by by Montague Brown, which is not available on good reads.

    7. Love and art do not embrace what is beautiful but what is made beautiful by this embrace He s that true That good And the best moral I ve ever heard.
