Philosophy Inside Out

Show Summary Details


This chapter develops the reconstructionist demand more globally. Its negative thrust challenges philosophers to reflect on the problems and projects they pursue: could they cogently explain how the questions they address admit potentially justifiable answers that can reasonably be expected to accumulate into a body of information according with the standards of well-ordered inquiry? More positively, the chapter outlines a history of philosophy and of philosophical problems.

Keywords: history; philosophy; philosophical problems
