Amazing. A fully satisfactory review warrants more words than I can offer right now. But nearly every paragraph and sentence offer insights, often dispatching entire philosophical systems. The level of abstraction will make it difficult for most people. Readers interested in his thought, but don't have the intuitions to follow his words, may do well to considering reading George Berkeley, Michael Polanyi, or T.S. Eliot first.
