Anti-Blurb 1

Frederick the Great, on the philosopher La Mettrie:

He was merry, a good devil, a good doctor, and a very bad author. By not reading his books, one can be very content.

(This anti-blurb was found in Simon Critchley’s The Book of Dead Philosophers, which will receive a full review on this site soon.)
