Just a quick response in hopes of a longer one later today or tomorrow:

Again, such as? It should be easy to list two or three since there are so many. But let's ramify this: you said "only." So, things like the Gettier problem are not "great new philosophical" ideas, in your view? (This raises another issue that perhaps should be settled first: How do we agree on what's a "great new philosophical" before either of us lists them?)
