“What is the best way to follow the great philosophers? Is it to repeat what they said or to do what they did, that is create concepts for problems that necessarily change? For this reason philosophers have very little time for discussion. Every philosopher runs away when he or she hears someone say, Let’s discuss this. Discussions are fine for roundtable talks, but philosophy throws its numbered dice on another table. The best one can say about discussion is that they take things no farther, since the participants never talk about the same thing.”
