Has psychology debunked conceptual analysis?
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Philosophy and History of Technology, Philosophy.
2006 (English)In: Metaphilosophy, ISSN 0026-1068, E-ISSN 1467-9973, Vol. 37, no 1, 26-33 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The philosophical method of conceptual analysis has been criticised on the grounds that empirical psychological research has cast severe doubt on whether concepts exist in the form traditionally assumed, and that conceptual analysis therefore is doomed. This objection may be termed the Charge from Psychology. After a brief characterisation of conceptual analysis, I discuss the Charge from Psychology and argue that it is misdirected.
