Don't start from greeks.
Greek philosophy is shit.
All you need is Wittgenstein's philosophical investigations(his other works are useless). He's correct in observing that philosophy is bullshit, arisws from misunderstanding language games, and the urge to philosophize is problematic and should be nipped in the bud. According to him, reading PI is supposed to be a therapeutic experience so that you stop philosophizing bullshit.

      The problem with

      is that it's full of people who were to stupid to read the source material but still want to discuss it. That is still prevalent on IQfy but to a lesser degree.

    Wittgenstein is prob the only philosophy book you’ve read right? Wittgenstein definitely did not resolve the whole of phillosophy.

    I have read the complete works of Wittgenstein and have sagaciously come to the conclusion that Wittgenstein utterly fails at "solving" philosophy in any meaningful way.

    No, I will not explain how. Just take my word for it. If you read Wittgenstein, his failures will become clear as day

      I think PI says something interesting about the way epistemic justifications hang together, but Quine said this sort of thing much more clearly re holism and Hegel was already getting at the problems in positivism and foundationalism far earlier.

      The philosophy of language stuff is vague. PI is simply obscurantist. If you reduce it to the least controversial take, Wittgenstein is just pointing out that language is a social practice. E.g., Arab babies raised in France call things by French words. Only people who speak the same language understand each other. Language evolves over time through social forces.

      The thing is, this is obvious and no one ever denied it. But when Wittgensteinians want to make this non trivial they have to try to explain how language is nothing but social practice and games all the way down. The thing is, it clearly isn't. Kirpke has to say ridiculous things about private rule following because of this, things even other Witt fans call out.

      What causes languages' rules to be what they are? Why do we have different names for different species? Well, this obviously goes back to nature. If there was no difference between cows and tigers we wouldn't have different names for them. Referring to rules and then having no explanation of how rules form just seems sort of trivial to me. No shit language is social. What philosophy of language was always interested is how the rules work to fix meaning.

      Now, Wittgenstein is good ammunition against verificationalism and Russell's theory of language, but these are obviously wrong. Unfortunately, a lot of Witt fans seem to think all philosophy aside from Witt is positivism, and that defeating positivism is defeating all prior philosophy.

        because we want to differentiate them and we find that making those distinctions is useful.

          And why are those distinctions useful? Obviously because there are different species. So it isn't "social practices all the way down." Human beings don't fail to distinguish between snow and ice until someone makes an arbitrary rule of how to refer to them.

    Any person who says “all you need to understand X subject is this book” is a midwit. Books are there to refine your own view, not just copy the author’s one. I pick up bits and pieces from a plethora of works. Be it either the Greeks, the Rationalists, the Idealists, or Wittgenstein. Don’t take anything as Gospel, but create your own system and critically compare it to these great works. There’s nothing intellectual about regurgitating someone else’s views.

            I just find this confusing. All of the authors with books and ideas to their name formed them through discussion with books and people. Why would applying this line of thought yourself be "liberal bullshit"?
