Notes

Abstract:
This thesis identifies and explicates a recurring mistake in contemporary philosophicalthinking;namely, the conflation of the practical importance of a given line of philosophical inquiry with the importance of the concept around which the line of inquiry eventually coalesces. After the mistake is first unpacked in its most abstract form, two extended examples of the mistake are proffered in hopes of both further elucidating its abstracted argumentative structure as well as demonstrating how a lack of attentiveness to the mistake can lead our thinking astray.
