‘We spread the net, but we have to see what it catches.
And while there is nothing that it is incapable of catching, there is much that is never actually caught....
[P]hilosophy is concerned with what might be called the formal properties of the net’.

A.J. Ayer, ‘Philosophy and Science’ in his Metaphysics and Common Sense, London, Macmillan 1969, 82-93, this quotation, p92.
Originally published in a Russian translation in Voprosy Filosofii (1962).
