Transcendental Philosophy and Naturalism

Penelope Maddy

Oxford University Press

The goal of this paper is to characterize a particularly austere form of contemporary naturalism called ‘Second Philosophy’ using radical skepticism about the external world as a diagnostic instrument. It begins by presenting Second Philosophy alongside the relevant form of First Philosophy, then develops an extended compare-and-contrast with responses to skepticism from transcendental philosophy (represented by Kant) and therapeutic philosophy (represented by Kant again, and then by Carnap, Wittgenstein and Austin). The hope is that this exercise will bring Second Philosophy into sharper focus.

Keywords:   Austin, Carnap, Kant, naturalism, Second Philosophy, transcendental philosophy, therapeutic philosophy, Wittgenstein
