At a meeting in the forties Paul Tillich undertook to expound his views on the Absolute and "the ground of being." It happened that G.E. Moore was in the group that evening, and everyone looked forward with great interest to what Moore would say. When his time came, there was an ominous pause, and then Moore broke out, "I am sorry to say that there is not a single sentence in Professor Tillich's paper, not a single sentence, that I have been able to understand. Would Professor Tillich give me one proposition that he thinks I might be able to understand?" As I recall, Tillich was too dumbfounded to reply. It was the most direct confrontation I have known between German speculation and British analysis.Im pretty confident that MY philosophickle genyus will be reckonizd, once fokes realize how dangd much shit I cmpletely dont undrstand.
