"Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of our language"
-Wittgenstein

If you're serious about wanting to shut down bad arguments and stopping bad thinking, understanding the language behind your thought is the first place to start.

The problem comes when we are having a philosophical discussion just fine, and you come along and derail the topic because you can't stand us all having the same definition.


And you're the winner for my new sig!

Gotta agree that bratt's is sig worthy. I don't particularly like sigs, myself.

An outcry against people who play semantics...so I'm pretty much standing up to the internet.

Oh ok. I wasn't sure if you were sigging it because you thought I said something ridiculous or not. :P
