Horse Shit

I just read John Gray's disappointing latest book, The Silence of Animals.  There's not much to say about it.  He's good on criticising humanism and the progressive perspective, but utterly unconvincing.  His selection of quotations left me cold.  His economic perspectives miscalculations.I didn't know about Felix Mauthner or that he was born in a Bohemian town the Gernams pronounce as 'horse shit'.
