By looking at other people's flames--philosophers who build their fires professionally--the rest of society can learn how better to tend their own fires. And with this view of "rational choice within a veil of ignorance" we have brought to a close our analysis of Rawls and the background context for contemporary discussions. In fact. we must ask. and damned by basic errors that all who cared could see. my emphasis) Like Willard. When subsequently engaged in conscious reflection on the necessary conditions for meaningfulness, immortality is often thought to be transcendentally necessary (though not sufficient) for meaningfulness.

It now survives in two ways: (1) As a zombie category that imperfectly (often, badly) maps onto a range of divisions within the discipline of philosophy and the humanities more generally—e.g., around institutional location, relative status and power within a profession, geographical location and national traditions, style of work, preferred methods, field of interest, peer groups and lineages, and so on. (2) As a rhetorical device drawn on by people struggling for footing in one or more of these areas of conflict to characterize themselves or their opponents for good or ill. 1. it’s not incommunserable insomuch as they are takling about different topics and often times would not clash on anything except the intial presuppositions (which are everything). zizek, lacan, badiou, derrida, foucault, nietzsche, kierkegaarde, sartre, etc. can talk to frege, hussel, wittgestein, aj ayer, (even chomsky) in conversation but would both feel uneasy. philosophers speak to eachother in last names “ah yes, but a lacleaun interpretation of radical democracy as used by _____” insert last name, is necessary for most academic philosophers to talk to one another, without a common reading-ground its hard. not to mention most continental view analytics in a certain light, and vice versa. most analytics see continental thinkers as english major drop outs, they get hardcore into nihilism and lack the capacity to find a scientific approach to language, fall sway to the passions and emotions, believe their 5 senses and the pheneological heraclitean flux of a reality to be it. most continental thinkers think analytics are men who walk around building glass houses they never live in, great conceptually masterpeices that are coherent, lucid, and everything else, but lack a fundamental vitality of life. 2. it’s a joke to think anyone is studying pure philosophy anymore. philosophy is the great grandmother of the arts giving birth to sub-disciplines and leaving them on their own… modern semiotics, linguistics, sociology, anthropology, logic, computer programming, etc. etc. are children of philosophy, in so much as philosophy guided a man to concentrate in a leisurely fashion on a particular mind-problem that developed into its own language and form of dealings. they both wanna say they are the real philosophers, analytics wanna say that like socrates, they clarify definitions to arrive at a clearer understand of neutral truths and the form of truth itself and that ignorance is the cause of most moral injustices, and continentals would say they represent socrates, not thinking they know the answer but enjoying the performative aspect of philosophy as an enagement with the immediate world and questioning without ever building a pillar of knowledge 3. no. although when people who are philosophers unite over political issues, like Counterpunch the left anarchist magazine, you might have somoene like todd may a postructuralist anarchist, work with noam chomsky, a anarcho-syndicalist (one is clemson, one is MIT) but both agree that the current system is corrupt. so philosophers might work with eachother from different “schools” but they would try to stay off eachothers claims. 4. it’s not style. even having a world war on your country is part of the division. knowing the impossiblity of nationalism, technology, authority, and power to properly guide a nation to human improvement takes its toll. 5. they would disagree on the nature of the problem. for americans we want philosophy for business ethics and logic, productivity, neopragmatic concerns for europeans philosophy is a cultivation of an idea toward the general expanse of a human being, but in line the other forms of cultivation not to be taken as its “own activity”, so its impure. it just listens to its instincts and falls into trouble and cant say anything “objective” Richard Rorty is perhaps the best-known bridge-builder between the continental and analytical approaches ref.: http://vegasallnight.com/lib/the-cognitive-value-of-philosophical-fiction-bloomsbury-studies-in-philosophy.

As such, in historical events, literature, or works of art, hermeneutics is always the relationship between two horizons of understanding and interpretation within a tradition, and it has the prospective goal of "consensus." Criticizing Enlightenment for its ahistorical perspectives and denying that the methods of the natural sciences are the only means to "objective knowledge," Gadamer emphasized the deeper truth in historical understanding, which passes from generation to generation through written texts, which are—contrary to Derrida's primacy of "writing"—always rooted in the living language ref.: http://trueent.net/library/analytic-versus-continental-arguments-on-the-methods-and-value-of-philosophy. The Oxford movement was carried on by Austin's successors, but none of them were as skilled or accomplished as he in his form of ordinary language analysis, and it has mostly disappeared today as a separate and clearly distinguishabble branch of analytic philosophy. But, at the time it came into prominence, for those philosophers who were attracted to analytic philosophy but who deplored what they saw as being the mistakes and narrowness of logical positivism or logical empiricism, the work of Austin and his fellows was often seen as a breath of new and invigorating air http://vegasallnight.com/lib/analytic-philosophy-classic-readings.

Frege’s creation of quantificational logic and the rebellion by Russell and Moore against British idealism are the two most significant events in the emergence of analytic philosophy, events that lie at the root of many of the ideas and achievements that we associate with early analytic philosophy, such as Frege’s logical analysis of existential and number statements, Moore’s critique of naturalism, Russell’s theory of descriptions and theory of types, and Wittgenstein’s conception of logical propositions as tautologies http://vegasallnight.com/lib/word-and-object-mit-press-by-willard-van-orman-quine-1964-03-15.

He deplores the sort of philosophy or cultural or literary theory that makes it ‘almost impossible to clamber back down [...] to a level [...] on which one might discuss the merits of a law, a treaty, a candidate, or a political strategy’ (Rorty 2007: 93) , cited: http://www.awarenessuniversity.ch/index.php/lib/chaos-gaia-eros-a-chaos-pioneer-uncovers-the-three-great-streams-of-history. This paper takes its inspiration from Paul’s profound approach to philosophy in his letter to the Colossians. Oddly, this approach has been largely ignored even by Christian philosophers http://vegasallnight.com/lib/methodology-epistemology-and-philosophy-of-science-essays-in-honour-of-wolfgang-stegm-a-ller-on. Although there are more than a dozen competing theories of the mind, the major philosophers who work in this field (including D. Searle) adhere to naturalism or physicalism in one form or another. If we look in very general terms at the history of analytic philosophy in the twentieth century and leave to the side many of its secondary and uncharacteristic branches, we may say that after its initial period there were three basic trends within it: the linguistic, ontological, and naturalistic trend , source: http://pal-up.info/index.php/books/the-problems-of-philosophy.
