How to Be Sceptical about Philosophy

Philosophy 61 (235):83 - 93 (1986)
Alasdair Maclntyre and Richard Rorty agree on two very fundamental matters, namely, to put it in Rorty's words, ‘that philosophy as practised professionally today lacks any systematic unity’ and that this very fact poses for us now, standing where we stand, ‘a central philosophical problem’.1 It is also true that they both have a much more historicist view of philosophy than does traditional analytic philosophy; they regard the study of the history of philosophy as an integral element in the study of philosophy and think that philosophy is not something to be sharply separated, as a distinct discipline, from other areas of learning
