To the first sentence I would like to add that it would be a great achievement to put thinkers as Wittgenstein and Nietzsche into a framework without messing up their message. Those philosophers insist that frameworks are quite useless for people who want to understand what they're trying to say. Nietzsches favourite pastime was to smash his own framework.
As to the second sentence: why?
