This : question
Originally it was about the difference between eastern and western thought.
That got closed as too broad but after a few brief answers.
Then it was changed to "Can philosophy prove facts like science" — no relation to the original.
And then reopened.
What happens to the answers to the original?
This is not exactly a trivial/rhetorical question :
- SE encourages improving over deleting posts
- But if the improvement crosses a threshold — Sorites? Theseus? — it nonsensicalizes earlier answers.
