While the title might mislead prospective readers to assume that Assholes A Theory offers either a lighthearted assortment of anti asshole yet thoroughly assholish uips or an amoral guidebook in the manner of Machiavelli s The Prince what this book really delivers is a complete account of the psychology morality and social bearing of the common asshole James is a serious philosopher and Assholes is a serious piece of ethics James handles the asshole phenomenon from every angle The asshole as he defines it is someone who systematically allows himself special advantages in his relations with others out of an entrenched sense on entitlement that leaves him inoculated against the legitimate complaints of others It is that very failure to acknowledge others as moral euals that makes them so frustrating to others Yet even when we do fight back assholes come euipped with a set of defenses that leave them invulnerable to capitulation If assholes are left unchecked or worse if they are encouraged by society then it can create a host of interpersonal and societal problems some of which may spiral into ever worse social outcomes As a philosopher James is uite careful about every facet of his argument drawing on such great ethicists as Plato Kant Rousseau and Hobbes to deploy his message The asshole may in fact be a given and inescapable part of life yet to the extent that we can we should strive to support a society that discourages assholes and encourages cooperation
