The Plain English Campaign don’t like Kant. Perhaps they should try Hegel.
Germaine Greer writes:
The campaign’s press officer, the ruggedly monosyllabic Ben Beer, informed me as plain Ms Greer – no honorifics – of my unlooked-for good fortune thus: “I am writing on behalf of the Plain English Campaign with the news that you have won one of our infamous ‘Golden Bull’ awards this year. The award is for a sentence published in your Guardian article published on October 23 2006 … some of our supporters were somewhat baffled by the following: ‘The first attribute of the art object is that it creates a discontinuity between itself and the unsynthesised manifold.'”
There’s some heated discussion in the comments too.
