There certainly are a lot of philosophy problems.The more you look at it, the more you can find. Problems stretching away as far as the eye can see. And most of them unsolved. It's true that, these days, with powerful computers, telescopes, cranes and so on, we could calculate how heavy the problems would be, if they were all collected together and put in one place. Or how far they would stretch if they were laid end to end. Or we could look very closely at the problems and see exactly what bits they are made up of. Because, these days, computers and technology can do virtually anything, and certainly everything that matters. Except, perhaps, solve philosophy problems.
Because the problem with philosophy problems is that they don't have proper solutions.
Is that a problem with philosophy problems?
