If you're using Duolingo on your phone, and the font is too big or the screen too small to fit all the tiles x2, the app will start pre-filling the answer for you to free up space.

The longer the sentence is, the more likely this is to happen, and this is certainly one of the longer sentences in the course.

An interesting thought, but could it be that the wine merely makes the books' philosophies less unbelievable and therefore easier to mull over?

Shouldn't "on the planet" be accepted as well?

https://www.duolingo.com/LukeYoung6

"On the planet" is translated "på planeten" and "verden" is quite specifically "the world."

i see that in a similar way: i think it is common in english to say "on earth". Even if it is not the exact translation it has the same meaning in this sentence

Hegel would strongly disagree with this statement. In his view, philosophy both was and should be an arduous task.
