The Role of Conceptual Analysis

(p.28) Chapter 2 The Role of Conceptual Analysis
From Metaphysics to Ethics

Frank Jackson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter gives an account of what conceptual analysis is in terms of how it makes folk theory explicit by drawing on intuitions about possible cases and how, so understood, it solves the location problem outlined in Ch. 1. It is argued that the approach is less anti‐Quinean than it might seem.

Keywords:   conceptual analysis, folk theory, possible cases, Quine
