I have said some mean things about Wittgenstein, but am forced to admit that my method in this blog has been much the same as his.
From Culture and Value by Ludwig Wittgenstein (translated by Peter Winch)
"If I am thinking about a topic just for myself and not with a view to writing a book, I jump all round it; that is the only way of thinking that comes naturally to me.
"Forcing my thoughts into an ordered sequence is a torment for me. Is it even worth attempting now?
"I squander an unspeakable amount of effort making an arrangement of my thoughts which may have no value at all."
"Each of the sentences I write is trying to say the whole thing, i.e. the same thing over and over again; it is as though they were all simply views of one object seen from different angles."
"One is constructive and picks up one stone after another, the other keeps taking hold of the same thing."
This has not always been the case - most of my earlier writings have been theses of essay length; especially my scientific and polemical writings.
But I have been forced into this business of jumping-all-around political correctness, because I can't seem to 'get' it into a thesis.
Is this the nature of the subject (it is large: the entire world view of mainstream modern intellectual life in the West), or is it simply because I have not yet understood it?
At the moment, I am still not sure.
I shall just have to keep picking-up one piece after another until clarity strikes, or I am struck-down, or I get fed-up of the whole business...
