Assholes: A Theory by Aaron James


within the spirit of the mega-selling On Bullshit, philosopher Aaron James items a theory of the asshole that may be both intellectually provocative and existentially necessary.

What does it mean for someone to be an asshole? the solution isn't obvious, despite the fact that we're frequently in my view stuck coping with other folks for whom there is not any better title. try as we would possibly to keep away from them, assholes are found everywhere—at paintings, at house, at the street, and within the public sphere. Encountering one reasons great issue and personal pressure, especially because we frequently can't bear in mind why exactly someone will have to be appearing like that.

Asshole control begins with asshole bear in minding. so much as Machiavelli illuminated political technique for princes, this guide in any case provides us the ideas to assume or say why assholes disturb us so, and explains why such other folks appear part of the human social situation, especially in an age of raging narcissism and unbridentificationled capitalism. those ideas are additionally practically helpful, as bear in minding the asshole we're stuck with is helping us assume constructively about how one can deal with problems he (and they are mostly all males) items. We get a better experience of whilst the asshole is best resisted, and whilst he is best omitted—a better experience of what is, and what isn't, value preventing for.
