It was asserted that in previous times people knew more philosophy. A cursory examination shows that statement to be false. "Previous times" seems to be a purposefully open ended statement, considering its apologetic source this is unsurprising. What time period is he talking about? 5 years, 10 years 50? a hundred? Are we to believe that college enrollment has decreased during that time? Are we to believe that human knowledge has decreased since that time?
