Mistakes about Conceptual Analysis

  • John Wilson

Abstract

I have suggested that if we want to know — putting it brutally — what use or good philosophers are, we shall best interpret the question “What is philosophy?” along the lines of “What kind of truth, and what kind of arguments for it, do philosophers uniquely dispense?” or “How do philosophers as against, say, historians or scientists or literary critics or psychologists distinguish themselves as truth-finders?”
