Aphorisms are perhaps philosophy’s shortest and most popular product. Their enduring legacy stems from the inexhaustibility of their interpretation. Philosopher Andrew Hui defined them in his recent book on the subject as “short sayings which require interpretation”. Aphorisms are collected, shared, and interpreted without end. You can find them on inspirational posters, as tattoos, posted on Twitter and Tumblr, and printed in the opening pages of novels.
