Aphorisms are philosophical statements with a punch: they deliver a statement about life, often in amusing or easy-to-remember terms. They have a long history, starting with the ancient Greeks, and are still used now. In this talk, Jay Friedenberg will define aphorisms and contrast them with other short literary forms, providing examples from around the world. He will then read examples of his own aphorisms on Objectivist topics and contrast aphorisms and fully constructed philosophies.
