If anyone can find anything of substance in Wittgenstein's book "Philosophy And Mathematics" I'd like to know what it is. — DanielWainfleet May 9 '16 at 13:22
@DanielWainfleet: Many philosophy students have idols that they cannot let go off. That is often why they keep telling others to worship the same idols. In fact, that is one of the major reasons why "learning philosophy will be detrimental to learning math", because most of it is about parroting idols. The other reason is that most philosophers are completely incompetent in basic logic. For example, Wittgenstein spouted nonsense when he couldn't understand Godel, but till today all his idolizers repeatedly try to find new-fangled ways of twisting all his words in an attempt to save face. — user21820 yesterday
