[Comments] (2) Florilegium:

A single proposition isn't a theory, it's a slogan; and what some philosophers do isn't theorizing, it's slogan-honing. What is this labor for? What confusion would be dissipated, what advances in outlook would be created, by success in this endeavor? Do you really need something to print on your T-shirt?

I think I still like slogans though. Or at least think some profound ideas can be expressed in a paragraph or less.
