In the future philosophy will be neither continental nor analytic but synthetic: Toward a promiscuous miscegenation of (all) philosophical traditions and styles

Southern Journal of Philosophy 50 (2):191-205 (2012)
Abstract
In this paper, I suggest that the important philosophy of the future will increasingly be found neither in the “continental” nor in the “analytic” traditions but, instead, in the transcending sublation of (all) traditions I call “synthetic philosophy.” I mean “synthetic” both in a sense that encourages the bold combinatorial mélange of existing styles, traditions, and issues, and also in the Hegelian sense of sublating dichotomous oppositions, appropriating the distinctive insights of both sides while eliminating their errors and exaggerations, and thereby creating new syntheses in which the old oppositions are transcended
