The anfractuosity of his argument left me bewildered and confused.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato(427-347 BC) Philosopher and Educator

Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. Henry James (1843-1916) Writer

When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire
kind people. -Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) Theology Professor

This is a rare word indeed I could not even find it in my dictionary.
But it is used as well in medical term as in " The anfractuosity of the mind or brain" which I find on the net.
Which is synonymous of "winding".

Thanks for the word Tami.

MyLOA, The word is very unusual. It also refers to any winding, crooked, twisted path, crevice, canyon. Also maybe used in legal terminology to refer to a convoluted legal argument meant to confuse rather than clarify.
My sister and I like to compete with each other using words. I can't wait to spring this one on her!!!
Camac, My friend, I am sorry to hear of your friends last patrol.
TamiMcLeod, Come on , use it in a sentence!

His percieved luminosity diminished as the subject matter in discussion became more anfractuous.
