a commonplace book
Wittgenstein didn’t give me the answers, but his philosophy did teach me to ask the right questions.
David Aurbach, “The Limits of Language,” Slate, Sept. 1, 2015
From a very well-presented article about the author’s experience taking a class on philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein.
To adapt the sentence into one I would say: “Philosophy doesn’t give me the answers, but it helps teach me to ask the right questions.”
