Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In his introduction, Tom Sorell notes that analytic philosophy is not only unhistorical but anti-historical. Contributors describe some of the problems this has caused for the history of philosophy and the reasons it has been generally reduced to little more than a repository of assorted philosophical arguments and errors. Given that the role of history is to cast the light of the past on the present, it invites the question of why the history of philosophy has allowed itself to be so reduced that it can neither contextualize the analytic tradition in the history of philosophy, nor compare and contrast it with other alternative traditions in philosophy. Are philosophical analysts intellectual bullies who will brook no contextualization of both their strengths and weaknesses in the history of philosophy? Is this why analytic philosophy is anti-historical? If so, what can historians of philosophy do to show that philosophy cannot be reduced to the analytic tradition in philosophy?
