Abstruse, Absurdism and Abulia
September 6, 2008
So it’s late and I’m tired and I was busy today so I didn’t get much research done on today’s word, so to make up for it I’m including three words from the same dictionary page, all of them fascinating in their own way.
ABSTRUSE – adj. difficult to understand eg. Women are abstruse.
ABSURDISM – n. the belief that human beings exist in a purposeless, chaotic universe. Search absurdism on youtube and you get a guy who appears to have no life at all and is likely the most boring conversationalist in the world.
ABULIA – n. Psychiatry an absence of will power or an inability to act decisively. eg. When I’m tired I have an abulia.
