    The study of the past may reveal truths, he allowed, but those truths are contingent, incomplete, and valid only “for the time being.” Put another way, historical perspectives conceived in what Becker termed “the specious present” have a sell-by date. I absolutely love my book! I absolutely love my book!! It was put together wonderfully. All the pictures brought back such great memories. I have told all my friends and showed them my book. I was absolutely blown away from the great quality. I will definitely order again.

      The present to which the datum refers is really a part of the past — a recent past — delusively given as being a time that intervenes between the past and the future. Let it be named the specious present, and let the past, that is given as being the past, be known as the obvious past. The study of the past may reveal truths, he allowed, but those truths are contingent, incomplete, and valid only “for the time being.” Put another way, historical perspectives conceived in what Becker termed “the specious present” have a sell-by date. Beyond their time, they become stale and outmoded, and so should be revised or discarded.

An interesting book about word origins and the validity of certain grammatical rules and constructions. While in the main I enjoyed Origins of the Specious, there are two things that restrain it from receiving a higher rating: some parts simply failed to keep my attention, and I felt that the author did not put forth an actual thesis.I agreed with her position that words should be used as /5.
