A Friendly Stab at Modern Philosophers

August 20th, 2017

Just wanted to bring this excellently phrased quote to light:

"Современные философы - это подобие международной банды цыган-конокрадов, которые при любой возможности с гиканьем угоняют в темноту последние остатки простоты и здравого смысла." - Виктор Пелевин

or for those who don't speak Russian,

"Modern philosophers are a kind of multi-national band of gypsy horse-thieves, who at any opportunity ride off cackling into the night, taking with them the last vestiges of simplicity and common sense." - Victor Pelevin
