Book Review: The Case Against Reality

The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes by Donald D. Hoffman

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

“If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody hears it, did it fall?”

Now take that sentence and stretch it out into an agonizing, 400 page self-congratulation penned by an uncharming Frasier using the biggest words and most circular arguments he can muster. Sprinkle in a fart-sniffing reference to his own research every three paragraphs or so, and you’ve assembled this horror.

If you want the same content but to spare yourself the trauma of trying to trudge through the masturbatory jargon, find a white guy with dreads outside of a music festival and promise him ketamine if he can summarize an Intro to Evolutionary Biology textbook.
