Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The object of philosophy is the logical clarification of thoughts.   Philosophy is not a theory but an activity.   A philosophical work consists essentially of elucidations.   The result of philosophy is not a number of “philosophical propositions”, but to make propositions clear.   Philosophy should make clear and delimit sharply the thoughts which otherwise are, as it were, opaque and blurred.”
