“Tried to Feser. Didn’t faze her!”

Our old pal Brian Leiter relays the following Philosophical Lexicon-style definition, suggested to him by a reader:

Feser (v) – to be in possession of the unique interpretation of a classic argument that makes it not only work (pace everyone else's views) but makes it decisive.

Example: "Listen, dude, you can keep talking about how the ontological argument ‘doesn't work’ – but I've Fesered it."

Not really fair, and certainly not meant to be flattering. But, let’s face it, pretty funny.
