By J.-M. Kuczynski

Philosophy is the technological know-how of the technological know-how and for this reason the research of the assumptions underlying empirical inquiry. on condition that those assumptions can't in all probability be tested or perhaps pointed out at the foundation of empirical facts, it follows that philosophy is a non-empirical self-discipline. And on condition that our linguistic and cultural practices can't in all probability be tested or perhaps pointed out other than at the foundation of empirical info, it follows that philosophical questions are usually not linguistic questions and don't in a different way obstacle our conventions or our cultural practices. This includes that philosophical truths usually are not tautologous or in a different way trivial. It additionally includes that empiricism is fake and, for that reason, that Platonism is right. Given a transparent knowing of why Platonism is true and of what this means, a couple of shibboleths of up to date analytic philosophy are quickly demolished and are not any much less quickly changed with independently corroborated and intuitively believable possible choices. New solutions are given to age-old questions pertaining to clinical rationalization, causal and logical dependence, linguistic that means, own id, the constitution of the psyche, and the character of private accountability. present solutions to those query are completely thought of and duly prolonged, converted, or changed. each technical time period is outlined; each philosophy-specific suggestion is defined; and the positions defended are in keeping with common sense, as far as their being in line with the suitable info permits them to be. as a result, this booklet is intelligible to philosophically minded laymen. while, it really is applicable for complex students, on condition that it defends unique viewpoints and given additionally that, although it discusses previous viewpoints, it does so in new methods. since it is obviously written, it really is intelligible to neophytes; however it isn't an introductory textual content and it's not a textbook. There are appendices: the 1st, an intensive exposition of the rudiments of formal common sense, in addition to the conceptual underpinnings of that self-discipline; the second one, a definition and analytic dialogue of every technical time period that happens within the text.
