men-are-assholes

While all of us could use advice in asshole management, we cannot get far without an answer to our initial question: what is it for someone to be an asshole? If nothing else a good answer – a good theory of the asshole – would be intellectually interesting. It would give us the concepts to finally think or say why some people disturb us so. That, in turn, would ideally open a window into deeper aspects of morality and social life. We would see what assholes reveal about the human social condition and why assholes are everywhere, and in every society.
