Comment on Method

The work of philosophy is description, not explanation. We do not require new terms to uncover phenomena. Rather additional terms, or more explanation, will only further obscure what we are looking for. What we are looking for is right before us. It needs only to be presented properly, or presented beside other phenomena in such a way that we make the connection--we see the pattern. In connections and patterns lie understanding. What is troubling will disappear.

Setting two phenomena beside each other we see some link. We make a comparison and something is now clear. We see the phenomena differently--not rightly--but differently. The world is different. If we feel relief we need not look further. We can again go about our activities in this new world. The inquiry has led to silence. The body moves again, unencumbered by confusion.

  1. The best way to improve the vocabulary is to eliminate words.
