4.0 out of 5 stars New rationalism, 15 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Philosophy of Philosophy (Blackwell/Brown Lectures in Philosophy) (The Blackwell / Brown Lectures in Philosophy) (Paperback)
This book represents a fascinating assault on the notion that philosophy can merely disentangle linguistic knots. Instead, it proposes that 'armchair thinking' can provide us with substantive information about the real world. In doing so it leans heavily on conclusions drawn from arguments in formal modal logic, much as the seventeenth century rationalists purported to draw conclusions about the real world from the logic of their day. One can believe that the project is doomed to failure and still hugely enjoy the dexterity with which the arguments are handled.
