Razor #9: Rand’s Razor

Rand’s Razor:

Prior to philosophising,
the philosopher needs to identify
their initial, irreducible, primary axioms.


Be as clear as you can in the first place
to become even clearer,
as clear as you can be.


(In philosophy, a razor is a principle or rule of thumb that allows one to eliminate (‘shave off’) unlikely explanations for a phenomenon, or avoid unnecessary actions.)
