Citações Russell Jacoby

„Common sense, the half-truths of a deceitful society, is honored as the honest truths of a frank world.“

—  Russell Jacoby
Context: The Adlerians, in the name of “individual psychology,” take the side of society against the individual. … Adler’s later thought succumbs to the worst of his earlier banalization. It is conventional, practical, and moralistic. “Our science … is based on common sense.” Common sense, the half-truths of a deceitful society, is honored as the honest truths of a frank world. p. 23-25
