Off topic, but where are you in mathematics right now?

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

Yeah, granted it's just the opinion of one, presumably knowledgeable guy, but it reads pretty true to me.

I guess I don't see why he'd say philosophy makes "no progress" when it's not really trying to. It's up to people to apply philosophy and make progress; it's not up to philosophy itself to make progress. It's just providing the new perspectives needed for people to apply.
