The Limits of Analysis

Review of Metaphysics 36 (3):732-733 (1983)

Rosen's critique of analytic philosophy is not a call for the abolition of analysis. It is a plea for analytic philosophers to come to grips with its limits, to recognize that analysis can have nothing to say about the context within which it is carried out. In the realm of the context of analysis, only intuitions and dreams will do. Philosophy, however, presently lacks a wide enough sense of rationality to cover both analysis and dreaming.
