THE LIMITS OF PHILOSOPHICAL ANALYSIS: TOWARDS POST-ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY
During my ten months of residence at NIAS I was working on a large project in philosophical methodology and metaphilosophy, dealing with a variety of issues, including the notorious gap between the analytic tradition and continental philosophy, the nature of conceptual analysis, the paradox of analysis, and the role of ordinary intuitions in philosophical arguments. While I was progressing with my research during the initial months of my stay at NIAS, I came to the conclusion, that instead of discussing the rift between analytical and continental philosophy at the abstract level, it would be more profitable and instructive to examine some recent tendencies within analytic philosophy aimed at to overcome constraints and limitations of the analytic tradition. I chose for that purpose the movement known as neopragmatism or the new pragmatism, and completed a book about it. I also made a substantial progress with the study of the paradox of analysis and models of philosophical analysis.
