I’m growing to like philosophy

Consider the riddle `Why do mirrors reverse left and right but not up and down?’ Although this seems to be a riddle about perception, it really turns on how we use words such as `reverse’. Under several of the disambiguations, it just isn’t true that the mirror reverses left and right. Under others, there is a benign sort of reversal … the mere fact that a question does not appear answerable by science is a good reason to suspect that there is some verbal confusion.
