Are modern philosophers able to do better?
Yet we already know that Western philosophy is a waste of time and so is the three years spent acquiring a degree in Academic Philosophy. It is three years spent learning how to talk like an arse, making everyone hate you and being unemployable and despised for the rest of your life.
