Example text

His naturalized epistemology “falls into place as a chapter of psychology and hence of natural science” (Quine 1969:82– 83). Hence the analytic investigation of patterns of justification and of the conceptual articulations involved in knowledge claims is displaced by the investigation of how the input of patterns of irradiation results in the output of linguistic and other behavior. Naturalized epistemology in effect reinstates a form of geneticism which analytic philosophy’s antipsychologism had labored to extirpate.

Strawson’s term “connective analysis” felicitously indicates the method. What was subjected to analysis, in this loose and non-reductive sense, was the use of words in sentences. The Moorean conception of concepts was repudiated, and talk of concepts was held to be justified as an abstraction from the use of words. ” Few, if any, believed that the apparatus of the predicate calculus provided the key to unlock the puzzles of philosophy, let alone that it constitutes the depth grammar of any possible language.

I should like to conclude by clarifying this. Each phase of the analytic movement was motivated by a revolutionary fervor. The protagonists passionately believed that they were ridding philosophy of intellectual pretensions, clearing the Augean stables of accumulated refuse, and putting the subject on a fresh footing. By the 1970s the revolutionary days were over. The spirit of scientific rationality needed no defending. It was triumphant in the technology and in the great theoretical discoveries of twentieth-century science.
