I guess that modernists who don't like theory aren't all bad. As long as you can avoid the phrases "philosophy sucks" and "I hate logic" like a really nasty plague, you and I should get along just fine.

Google the article, and see what others have written about it. I'm not suggesting copying their work! On the contrary: I am suggesting using their work to gain some kind of understanding of the article (which will, in turn, allow you to write something of your own).
This is what I do when I'm stuck writing a paper on a philosopher I just don't "get," and I find it works wonders.

Take this recommendation very, very seriously Richard. Really. The cost of trying every single Adagio tea (for someone who doesn't work there) is $344.
What's impressive is the fact that $344 is actually a relatively low figure. Trying every tea at Upton would cost you well over $750, and trying every tea at Holy Mountain would cost you over $1300!
Moral of the story? Work for every single tea company just long enough to try all of their teas.
