On bullshit

According to Harry Frankfurt, professor emeritus of philosophy at Princeton university, "bullshit" is not just a noun but also a verb because "bullshit" is not so much just an end product, but essentially a process. Frankfurt's insightful essay On Bullshit came out the first time in 1986 CE, two years later in his essay collection The Importance of What We Care About: Philosophical Essays, and it is currently available also as a small book. Those of you who share with me a profound interest to aletheia (Greek for truth) will most likely find Frankfurt's essay interesting as a good mirror of what aletheia is not about. On Bullshit can be found also from the net, for example from here.
