How To Sound Cultured

$3.20 Regular price $4.00

When you hear the name Rimbaud, do you think of Sylvester Stallone? Covering such inscrutable characters as Heidegger, Montaigne, Popper and Levi-Strauss (apparently not just a designer of jeans), writer Hubert Van Den Bergh - author of the bestselling How to Sound Clever - and journalist Thomas W. Hodgkinson offer you a wry look inside the mirrored palaces of high culture. Read this book and you'll never again mistake Hegel for Engels, you'll know when precisely to drop Foucault's name into a conversation and how to pronounce 'Borgesian', and you'll learn many more essential pointers for the intellectual life.
