Philosophy unravels the knots in our thinking; hence its results must be simple, but its activity is as complicated as the knots that it unravels. - Ludwig Wittgenstein (Philosophical Occasions Quotes)

Philosophy unravels the knots in our thinking; hence its results must be simple, but its activity is as complicated as the knots that it unravels.[Die Philosophie löst die Knoten in unserem Denken auf; daher muß ihr Resultat einfach sein, ihre Tätigkeit aber so kompliziert wie die Knoten, die sie auflöst.]
