Razor #9: Rand’s Razor

Rand’s Razor:

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

Thought:

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.)
