Philosophy and the Academy

  • Clark Glymour
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 211)

The awkwardness does not result entirely from social contrivance; it is a real and essential consequence of how well the philosophical tradition has met the demands that philosophical questions impose.
