In Other Words…
(Traditional/Scholarly) “Introductions” Are (Almost Always) A Waste Of Time
………….It has long been thought — as a product of former Aeons — that introductions to the work that is put-forward in any book are somehow necessary.
This was done for a number of reasons:
- To Educate The Readers About Some Of The Things That They Shall Be Reading
- This was only necessary in academic and professional “circles” as it would happen, from-time-to-time that a person would be obliged or persuaded to read something that he or she was either not interested in or had no prior knowledge about.
This Is No-Longer Necessary In This New Aeon
- To “Legitimatize” The Writing Because –- Either The First Reason Applied, Or Because The Subject-Matter Was A Bit “Out Of The Norm”.
- When this happened, an other person than the author was en’treated (or just handsomely paid) to write the introduction.
Also, No-Longer Necessary In This New Aeon
(Because Now, There Will Always Be Someone Who Is Even Crazier Than You)
- To Sell The Book.
- This tactic is more a product of “The Post-Industrial Age”, where-in a person — who was not in “The World Of Academia” — could and would actually spend money on things called “books”… but, first, would need to be persuaded to actually buy the damn things first.
