Philosophy is dead, along with much of the rest of the humanities -
murdered by the irrelevant, aggressive and malignant
analytical/linguistic pseudo-philosophy which, working its cancerous course,
burrows into a body of knowledge in the guise
of "methodology" or "scientific approach," then destroys it from within
by subjecting it to a pedagogical exercise called
which reduces it to a mass of tautology.
Analytical philosophy, linguistic philosophy, and deconstruction
and their successor, post-modernism, are all synonymous with nihilism.

Nihilism in education and the destruction of the humanities are causally related,
as are the decline of the humanities and the decline of Western civilization.
There are individuals, persons behind this.

They must be stopped.
