For some philosophers, writing is an unfortunate necessity, a means of communication that is at best irrelevant to the philosophical thought it expresses and at worst a barrier to that thought. The words in which the philosophical investigator writes up his or her results, according to these philosophers, should be as few and as transparent as possible.
7) The philosophers described above make which of the following assumptions about philosophy as a scholarly discipline?
A) Philosophy should entail the direct contemplation of thought, with as few mediating influences as possible.
B) Philosophy should be a means of personal expression as well as a vehicle for the communication of ideas.
C) Philosophy is inevitably determined by the written forms in which philosophical ideas are expressed.
D) Philosophy, in general, is more intellectually difficult than are other scholarly disciplines.
