Biblioclast

From LISWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A person who destroys books. Fortunately this mental aberration occurs infrequently.

However, when it does occur, it can be a dangerous result of mass anti-intellectualism. Such famous instances include the public book burnings during Nazi-Germany.

Depictions of large-scale biblioclastic behavior are found in famous literary works such as Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
