Philosophy Alive

Philosophy is the idea that carries the present into the future, and it stays alive by being re-cast in the mind that is the future’s future.  But it is the way of language, not philosophy, to further itself in the endless dissection of what has been said.  For no analysis of language has uncovered the real world.  Also, no record of things said lets us know what to say next.  Nor is our recognition of the past masters sufficient to show us what is to come.
