On transforming philosophy : a metaphilosophical inquiry by Kai Nielsen( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since Rorty, the crisis of method and interests in philosophy has been at the forefront of metaphilosophy. In this book, Kai Nielsen, one of the most prominent critics of philosophy-as-usual, examines critically the most important claims made on behalf of philosophy. After rejecting as chimerical the ambitious claims of traditional, especially foundational, epistemology and metaphysics, he presents the case for a more modest view of what philosophy can accomplish. Nielsen insists that philosophy must be devoted to actual problems of real people in everyday life. Influenced substantively by Dewey and more methodologically by Rawls, he carves out a defensible terrain for philosophy to inhabit - a terrain cleared of the more extravagant but implausible claims made by traditional philosophy
