gobbledygook

New York Times calls anthroposophy gobbledygook.

Marion Mahony, an M.I.T.-trained architect, made Frank Lloyd Wright’s early career possible. In the early 1900s she spent a decade producing renderings that kept his clients enthralled, despite his scandalous personal life. She drew borders of dense forests and flowers around his dry floor plans and facade proposals. […] In this fall’s spate of scholarship “Marion Mahony Reconsidered,” a book edited by David Van Zanten, a Northwestern University historian, explores how she drew inspiration from Wright’s collection of Japanese prints and her faith in the gobbledygook of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy.

H/t Roger.

  1. I agree, it is a very pleasing word Alicia. I also like ‘flibbertigibbet’, that’s the noise when the toad comes back up and hops into the nearest pond.
