The Three Ways of Philosophers

There are three ways by which a philosopher can convince his audience that his philosophy is good: first, he can try to show that his philosophy is logically consistent; second, he can try to prove that his philosophy works; third, he can assert that his philosophy is perfect because it is his philosophy and he is never wrong. A good philosopher will adopt the first way; a mediocre philosopher will adopt the second way; and a philosopher who is after political power will adopt the third way.
