Editorial Reviews


Cappelen's book is a wonderfully clear, largely well-argued case against a central assumption of many contemporary metaphilosophers ... it makes the prospect of a general metaphilosophy look very dim ... this is a well-argued, interesting book, challenging contemporary metaphilosophy fundamentally; I highly recommend it. Daniel Cohnitz, Disputatio This is an engaging and exciting book. .. Whether one is convinced by its conclusion or not, Philosophy Without Intutions represents a clear jolt to contemporary metaphilosophical orthodoxy. It is a vivid and powerful call for philosophers to examine their assumptions about philosophy. Anyone interested in the role of intuitions in philosophy or the proper description of contemporary philosophical practice will benefit from studying it. Jonathan Ichikawa, International Journal for Philosophical Studies If you're interested in the role of intuitions in philosophy, you need to read this book. Even if you're not particularl concerned by this metaphilosophical issue youwould probably still benefit from reading this book, for it may well convince you to change theway in which you articulate your arguments and interpret other authors. Cappelen has made anexcellent contribution to the ongoing debate over the importance of intuitions in philosophy. Stephen Ingram, Metaphilosophy Experimental results on the variability and intra-personal instability of philosophical intuitions have recently sparked a lively methodological debate about the reliability of the philosophical method. In his new book, Herman Cappelen argues that this entire debate is misguided. The reason is simple: philosophers dont rely on intuitions, so there is no reason for philosophers to worry about their reliability. Cappelens case for this claim amounts to one of the most original and well-argued contributions to recent discussions about philosophical methodology. His book should be essential reading for anyone interested in the debate. Kristoffer AHlstrom-Vij, Philosophical Quarterly I'm glad that Cappelen wrote this book ... It's important because it (indirectly but effectively) draws attention to some challenging questions that it would be very good for meta-philosophy to get clearer on ... it's a refreshing and provocative leftfield attack - one that we probably deserve. Anna-Sara Malmgren, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
