Deathless prose of the day.

Over at Small Dead Animals, commenter ET utters a gem of sparkling intellectual beauty.

"Read, if you can stand it, Derrida, Lyotard, Deleuze. You'll probably like them; I don't. It has nothing to do with skepticism but with the location of the power to define reality. Postmodernism rejects realism and inserts man as the agential power of defining reality. I prefer Aristotle and Peirce."

Now that my friends is what I call a cluebat. That is the best single sentence encapsulation of PoMo I've ever seen. Commenters are encouraged to try and top it, but your work is cut out for you.

ET, your kung-fu is strong.
