(p.45) 2 The Empirical Findings
Philosophy Within Its Proper Bounds

Edouard Machery

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 is the first systematic review of the empirical findings suggesting that the judgments influenced by philosophical cases vary across demographic groups (culture, gender, age, SES, personality, etc.) and are influenced by the way cases are presented (order and framing effects). While the empirical record remains spotty, a striking picture is beginning to emerge. Nearly every examined philosophical case, from nearly every area of philosophy, elicits either judgments varying across demographic groups or different judgments depending on how the case is presented. While the size of the effects is rarely large, it is often philosophically significant.

Keywords:   cross-cultural variation, framing effect, order effect, experimental philosophy, negative program, restrictionism
