This is how philosophers should salute each other: ‘Take your time.’

Simon Critchley, who started a new Times column The Stone, a forum for contemporary philosophers, quoting Wittgenstein. He says earlier in the column, “Pushing this a little further, we might say that to philosophize is to take your time, even when you have no time, when time is constantly pressing at our backs.” He replaced the timeless Steven Strogatz.
