If you observe that ever since Hume and Kant (mainly Kant, because Hume was merely the Bertrand Russell of his time) philosophy has been striving to prove that man’s mind is impotent, that there’s no such thing as reality and we wouldn’t be able to perceive it if there were—you will realize the magnitude of the treason involved.

Naturally, any philosophical approach aspires to consistency of some sort; but to the extent that critically oriented philosophers are concerned with challenging power structures, hegemonic belief systems, and universalisms that obscure, not to say squelch, the particular beliefs, values, and experiences of those whom they seem to empower, such philosophers must also endeavor to avoid these potentially oppressive tendencies in their own writing and teaching.

And given the fundamental heterogeneity of social life, the choice of scale makes a big difference to the findings. As these examples illustrate, there is ample room for productive exchange between philosophers with an interest in the nature of history and the historians and social scientists who have reflected deeply on the complexities of the concepts and assumptions we use in historical analysis.

My impression is that now, 35 years after the Kripkean revolution, a lot of philosophers would say to Kripke: We see your point about the Aristotelian intuitions of the plain man, and so we are willing to go along with you in calling ‘Water is H2O’ and ‘Whales are not fish’ necessary truths. Nevertheless, the smug attitude happy to blame religion for this faces the difficulty that modern political moralism is fully as anhedonic as any religion.

Drawing on four pre-existing Nietzsche sites. Two people from different traditions are unlikely to share a vocabulary or common views of key problems. Socrates was put to death by his fellow Greeks for influencing the youth of his country with too much questioning and doubt, for he encouraged everyone to question all their beliefs, no matter how sacred or important. Okay, so Marx was an economist not a philosopher. One can hardly claim that Analytic philosophers have universally thought of themselves as on the side of common sense and much less that metaphysical conclusions (on the ultimate nature of reality) are absent from their writings. �But there is in the history of the Analytic movement a strong anti-metaphysical strain, and its exponents have generally assumed that the methods of science and of everyday life are the authentic ways of finding out the truth.

I do not mean a self-professed school like the Vienna Circle. and Martinich and Sosa observe that AP probably defies definition. for they all emphasize the ideational or ‘viewish’ unity of AP in the linguistic thesis.

This has led to a tendency to look at other countries' development as non-standard or stunted. Specifically, individuals must interpret each other’s utterances as true assertions about objects and events in an “external world,” as descriptions of morally “right” actions in a social world of shared norms, or as “sincere” expressions of thoughts and feelings in the speaker’s “inner world.” In this “discourse theory of truth,” the notion of truth, far from being a misguided fiction of metaphysics, is a regulative ideal without which communication itself would be impossible.
