Philosophy is no joke! To encounter writings of a genuine philosopher, you ought to read what Susan Neiman writes in her book: Moral Clarity. She takes a serious inquirer through the Enlightenment with wit, humor and thorough mastery of her field.

With passages in these contrasting books we are able to see what aspects language can give us, and we can see in Max Black's book the world as significant in a way open to plain folks. He plays in language games to give us extraordinary insight into ordinary language and philosophical issues arising in it.
