Language is still a bitch

As long as there is language, philosophy will suffer, but as long as there is language, philosophy will be needed. Language is always changing. Maybe in due time words and their definitions will be universal. This will open the door to even more profound conversations. Philosophy suffers because its concepts depend on a shared understanding of language. Until universal definitions are agreed upon for these words, the concepts will sometimes be lost in translation.
