 						What Philosophy Might Be

Show Summary Details

Preview

The investigation carried out in this book is an example of a thoroughly empirical philosophical project. It is argued that this naturalistic conception of philosophy is continuous with much of the philosophical work of the past, although it does not leave philosophy entirely as it was. A conception of philosophy as empirical enterprise is presented and defended.
