Wittgenstein says somewhere (Culture and Value?) that in philosophy, the slow cure is all-important. Why is that? Is it because of the way in which philosophical problems involve our will as well as our intellect, and that a change of heart requires rehabilitation, rehabituation, a reorientation of our feelings, –something that takes more time than a change of mind would take? Otherwise, why take it slow? You’d need only the time it takes to consider the conclusion in light of the argument.
