    I don’t understand that on something solid meant. Would you use others Vocabulary to instead of them?

    @Anna When you eat, you close your mouth on solid food. When you become open-minded the goal is to use that open-mindedness to discover and settle on a philosophy that is solid, meaning that it has a framework that is complete and explains life. For Chesterton that would have been Christianity.
