Philosophers aren't like the rest of us.

cakmpls, on having had to look up the word "intussusception", which is a medical term:

I had to look it up because the author uses it in the manuscript I'm editing, and while I have no hope of understanding the content (commentary on some German philosophers, gack), I'd at least like to know what the words mean.

(A managing editor who gives me some of these projects once said, "Sometimes the best you can do in editing philosophy is 'Yes, that's a sentence.'")


Anyone care to speculate on what that word was doing in a philosophy paper?
