The current e-book used to be written a few two decades in the past however it has no longer misplaced its topicality, for it comprises an enormous second look of the family of 2 major­ streams of latest philosophy - the Analytical and the Dialectic. Adherents and critics of those traditions are inclined to assurnethat they're diametrically adverse, that their roots, matters and methods contradict one another, and that no reconciliation is feasible. In contradistinction Russell derives either traditions from the typical root of the dissatisfaction with the arguments opposed to speculative philosophy. those in response to the writer go away a lacuna - convinced elementsof our Weltanschaaung were got rid of, yet they can't be got rid of with out substitute lest we've got an incomplete global view, so incomplete in reality that it can't be manageable. based on Russell a part of this vacuum is taken up through the analytical culture yet this custom isn't really in a position to taking over the rest of it. That section of the vacant area is besides the fact that taken up via the dialectical tradi­ tion, which in flip can't itself deal with the complete of the matter. therefore the 2 reactions to the death of speculative philosophy seem to be complementary in at the very least this feeling. however the writer is going additional, for in response to hirn the analytical arguments themselves essentially element to the emergence of dialectical difficulties, and the dialectical difficulties themselves desire a few such heritage to arise.

Example text

This demands, not merely an interpretation of the use of mathematics in physics, but also a study of concept-formation, a correlation of observable structures with fundamental theoretical constructs. Whi tehead' s Concept of Nature is an obvious instance of this type of theory. (Lv) In these three accounts of the business of the philosophy of science, we have talked of science as something given, given as propositions, as documents. But this is a very restricted point of view. Science, it may be said, is primarily a form of action, and the propositions and documents simply record the results of its action.

Further, the first Reality-Appearance contrast, in which appearance is a wholly false seeming subsequently corrected and replaced by reality, is certainly inapplicable; for it would be inconsistent wi th the simultaneous assumption of (2) and (3). It follows, then, that if we wish to use the language of appearance and reality to elucidate the relation between perception and physics we must, in order to preserve the consistency of the two realist theses, use it in the sense of the second contrast.

The evidence for Rx not only does not al ter the fact that it still seems that 3 is P but it enables us to explain the fact that 3 seems to be P (looks as if it were P). For the statement that 3 looks as if it were P now itself becomes an R-statement. In short, 12 SCIENCE, SPECULATION AND LOGIC in the seeond eontrast Rx and Ax are not logieally diseontinuous elasses of statements. Ax 1s a sub-set of Rx' but the meaning and implieations of statements in Ax cannot be understood until their eomplieated logical relations to other statements in Rx are elueidated.
