I beg to differ. Mathewson thinks all philosophical problems are  
merely misunderstandings. (I suppose he must mean that if everyone  
knew what he really meant, they would all agree with him.)

That is pretty simplistic I think. I would rather say, "Philosophical  
problems are conflicts of views arising from the human penchant for  
deciding what kind of world they think the world ought to be, and  
then trying to fit what they know into that preconception." I just  
made that up by the way. Quote me if you like. ;-)
