    One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bulls**t. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bulls**t and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bulls**t is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves.

    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.

    Das philosophische Enfant terrible Harry G. Frankfurt ist zurück, und zwar mit einem Paukenschlag. Nach seinem Welterfolg "Bullshit" widmet er sich in bewährt streitbarer Manier einer hochaktuellen Debatte: Ökonomische Ungleichheit. Während man sich allenthalben einig ist, dass die ungleiche Verteilung von Gütern und Reichtum das große Problem unserer Zeit sei, postuliert Frankfurt die radikale Gegenthese: Ungleichheit ist moralisch irrelevant.
