If some part of what is here comprised under the term "philosophy" is also discussed in the academic institutions, so much the better for them, but it is certainly not the most important part. Nor is the general attitude, the spirit behind it all, the same. Logic and linguistics have their place, but making use of them merely to get lost in words, in empty abstractions and futile hunts for non-existent meanings, is pseudo-serious delusion.
