I [SEI253a2]Review of Georg Biedenkapp's Im Kampfe Gegen Hirnbacillen

[SEI253a3]Congealed behind this somewhat unpromising title is the book of a brave man who succeeds in telling the reader much that is worthy of consideration. The sub-title of the work reveals more of its content: ‘A Philosophy of Small Words’. The author is in fact fighting against those ‘little words and arrangements of words which exclude or include too much’ and which reveal, in people who have the habit of using them for preference, a tendency towards ‘exclusive or superlative judgements’. It is self-evident—our author would contest even this phrase—that the fight is not concerned with these harmless words but with the tendency to become intoxicated by them and to forget, on account of the exaggerated representation thus achieved, the necessary limitations on our pronouncements and the inevitable relativity of our judgements.
