An Old Dog Rants Backwards: 1
Keywords:normative, empirical, causal
AbstractThose familiar with my more general views will be unsurprised to find me ranting about the need to find philosophical room for the normative, as well as the causal. In this respect, this typical thread in my ranting aligns in effect with two points made by Frege (1984 p. 351) in noting that “[e]rror and superstition have causes just as much as correct cognition.” Now, it seems to me that in the fairly recent past there has arisen a new way of making a similar mistake.
