Momento cultural


"Pseudo-intellectual is a type of snob. Such a snob imitates the manners, adopts the world-view and affects the lifestyle of a social class of people to which he or she aspires, but does not yet belong, and to which he or she may never belong."

Curiosidade: Apesar da conotação negativa da palavra snob, na realidade..."A snob, guilty of snobbery, is a person who adopts the worldview that some people are inherently inferior to him/her for any one of a variety of reasons including real or supposed intellect, wealth, education, ancestry, etc."


E esta hein?

[Adição à posteriori: Quando dei nome a este blog e convidei o Fábio para escrever comigo, eu próprio não sabia exactamente o que era um pseudo-intelectual, usava a palavra porque achava piada...]
