The Linguistic Turn is the title of an influential anthology edited by Richard Rorty, published in 1967. In his introduction, Rorty explained: The purpose of the present volume is to provide materials for reflection on the most recent philosophical revolution, that of linguistic philosophy. I shall mean by “linguistic philosophy” the view that philosophical problems are problems which may be solved (or dissolved) either by reforming language, or by understanding more about the language we presently use. (1967: 3) ‘The linguistic turn’ has subsequently become a standard vague phrase for a diffuse event — some regard it as the event — in twentieth century philosophy, one not confined to signed-up linguistic philosophers in Rorty’s sense. For those who took the turn, language was somehow the central theme of philosophy. There is an increasingly widespread sense that the linguistic turn is past. In this essay I ask how far the turn has been, or should be, reversed.
