“The atmosphere surrounding this problem is terrible. Dense clouds of language lie about the crucial point. It is almost impossible to get through to it.”
“Nothing is more important for teaching us to understand the concepts we have than to construct fictitious ones.”
“Remember that we sometimes demand explanations for the sake not of their content, but of their form. Our requirement is an architectural one; the explanation a kind of sham corbel that supports nothing.”
“We feel that even if all possible scientific questions be answered, the problems of life have still not been touched at all.”
“Bad philosophers are like slum landlords. It’s my job to put them out of business.”
