Philosophy defended as conceptual analysis

Philosophy is not a ‘ridiculous’ pursuit. Philosophers work with and on concepts.  Concepts “are the hinges or links of reasoning processes. They describe those aspects of thought that enables it to make the right connections: connections with the rest of the world; with other thoughts; and with actions. I use the word ‘right’ here to indicate the possibility of getting these connections wrong.”
