Problems and renewal in american philosophy

Philosophical Studies 108 (1-2):203 - 211 (2002)
Time in the Ditch presents evidence that the politics of the McCarthy Era has distorted American philosophy, both institutionally and intellectually, ever since that time. It proposes a new paradigm, situating reason, which is free of those distortions. It is neither an account of the new golden age of philosophy outside philosophy departments (as Harding wishes) nor a general history of the rise of analytical philosophy (as Hollinger thinks). I defend myself against Cohen's charges of factual error and historical misreading, and explain mycritical views on the way the history of philosophy is generally taught in the U.S.
