Apparently

Some people presume that "educated" people are somehow limited to only those concepts used by our predecessors. To those miseducated individuals, I will say only that one is not a philosopher by simply saying what previous philosophers have said, but by doing what previous philosophers have done, which is crafting conceptual systems; similarly for mathematicians and scientists, given that the quest for greater understanding of reality is logically endless. I will assert that we ought to craft conceptual systems, not only for the purpose of analyzing and synthesizing concepts, but for integrating concepts with experience in apparently useful ways. Useful in the sense that they allow us to predict and consequently manipulate our experiences with greater reliability and precision.
