Almost all of philosophy after Aristotle up until Hume consists of a few feathers of wisdom and a vast amount of hand waving. Justification, wishful thinking and cunning lies.
The the evolution of law is the only meaningful source of insight into western man’s mind. the evolution of art, the evolution of war, the evolution of money, banking, credit, interest and insurance; the evolution of mathematics. Of engineering. Of astronomy. Of our diets. Our dress. All add color.
But philosophy consists of convenient lies by the church, polite begging of the middle class. Wishful thinking of the proletarians. And nonsensical pseudo mysticism of the academy.
Liars all. Dreamers all.
We soldier onward.
