Det dunkla är en defekt

Är filosofi, till sin natur, svårt och dunkelt? Den frågar besvarar den engelske filosofen Keith Frankish i aeon. Hans avslutning på artikel är härligt upplysande:
In most cases, obscurity is a defect, not a virtue, and undue concern with interpretation puts the focus on people rather than problems. It is not easy to write clearly, especially on philosophical topics, and it is risky. Clear writers stand naked before their critics, with all their argumentative blemishes visible; but they are braver, more honest and more respectful of the true aims of intellectual enquiry than ones who shroud themselves in obscurity.
