Philosophy and the Empirical
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This volume focuses on a current issue of central important in contemporary philosophy, the relationship between philosophy and empirical studies. In recent years an older paradigm - philosophy as conceptual analysis - is giving way to a more varied set of models of philosophical work, and the current volume explores in detail a range of exciting examples. As with other volumes of Midwest Studies, each of the essays is a previously unpublished contribution by a major scholar.
