And the non-intuitive claim, thought true only by cerebral philosophers and brain-washed students of philosophy, that freedom is compatible with determinism is a black mark on the academy.

Such problems were not really soluble, but could be eliminated by clarifying the language.
In The Principles of Mechanics Hertz had proposed that, instead of giving a direct answer to the question: When these painful contradictions are removed, the question as to the nature of force will not have been answered; but our minds, no longer vexed, will cease to ask illegitimate questions.
