Single Idea 2958

[catalogued under 1. Philosophy / F. Analytic Philosophy / 7. Limitations of Analysis]

Full Idea

I cannot think of a single philosophically interesting concept that has been successfully and nontrivially analysed to most people's satisfaction.

Gist of Idea

No one has ever succeeded in producing an acceptable non-trivial analysis of anything
