Asking the Right Questions

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

Notes
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.”
