seudointellectual (plural pseudointellectuals)
A person who claims proficiency in scholarly or artistic activities while lacking in-depth knowledge or critical understanding.
A person who pretends to be of greater intelligence than he or she in fact is.
By Belgian comic artist François Schuiten (born 1956) for his comic “Les Cités obscures” (literally The Obscure Cities), a graphic novel series set on a Counter-Earth, started by Schuiten and his friend, writer Benoît Peeters in the early 1980s. In this fictional world, humans live in independent city-states, each of which has developed a distinct civilization, each characterized by a distinctive architectural style.
- Obscure is such a wrong translation for this. I didn't knew for years that it can express much more interesting and relevant to the book, in French.sted
- This kind of art is what you give to a kid and it will twist and bend its reality in a good way about what's possible for the rest of his life :)sted
- I'd never heard of it, but it looks a good read from what I saw online.PhanLo
- I also forgot about these, we just had the Samaris and Tower and my English was
paper dictionary based.sted
- but these made me draw these nonsense architectural objects instead of the stuff what should be in a normal kids exercise bookssted
In German, but I will translate for you:
Produced in 1972 they broadcast a "Preview to the world of tomorrow". By "tomorrow" they mean, the future. The year 2000.
And they say, that people will pick up electro cars that are for rent on the street (car sharing, electronic cars). Quite surprising.
And "online" shopping is shown by a camera that slowly scrolls through supermarket shelves and you press a button on your remote when you want to order an item. This looked funky.
