Thanks, Tdol and Red5.
I have tried to interest people in the net who do know and write English and give instructions to people to write clearly, concisely, namely, to take on dense and abstruse (those two words synonyms?) writers of philosophy, in order to produce a method to easily penentrate into their messages if any there be.
Sad to say, so far they have backed off with one excuse or another, or just preferrred not to engage me any further.
If you know any members of this board who might be interested, please refer me to them.
I just have this wicked idea of it being high time to bring these philosophers down from their lofty perch by which they must be laughing at us, in beclouding us with the fear that we just don't have the intelligence and the 'intuition' to understand their momentous but dense and abstruse writings.
What do you personally think of their writings, in terms of clarity and concise-ness?
I hope I can continue to exchange words with you two.
