The Futility? of Philosophical Inquiry

Michael Mock advances a defense of philosophy and of objective truth, and of the obtainability of knowledge:

"The man who has no tincture of philosophy goes through life imprisoned in the prejudices derived from common sense, from habitual beliefs of his age or his nation, and from convictions which have grown up in his mind without the co-operation or consent of his deliberate reason." -- Bertrand Russell
