PHILOSOPHY AND OTHER DISCIPLINES
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Philosophy.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-0071-3919
2008 (English)In: Metaphilosophy, ISSN 0026-1068, E-ISSN 1467-9973, Vol. 39, no 4-5, 472-483 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article offers a perspective on the role of philosophy in relation to other academic disciplines and to society in general. Among the issues treated are the delimitation of philosophy, whether it is a science, its role in the community of knowledge disciplines, its losses of subject matter to other disciplines, how it is influenced by social changes and by progress in other disciplines, and its role in interdisciplinary work. It is concluded that philosophy has an important mission in promoting clarity, precision, and open-mindedness in academic research and in society at large.
