Czy potrzebna nam jest filozofia eksperymentalna?
DO WE NEED AN EXPERIMENTAL PHILOSOPHY?
Languages of publication
The term „experimental philosophy" refers to a new movement in philosophy which promotes systematic psychological research into common-sense beliefs. This work has yielded interesting results in the field of human intuitions; nonetheless, there are doubts regarding its value for philosophy as such. The aim of experimental philosophy is not so much discover and analyze the latest problems, but to help answer classical questions in the philosophical tradition. Work in this field tends to be an interdisciplinary effort of philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientist, which is certainly praiseworthy. In this paper we explore experimental philosophy in its various currents, consider its critics in the analytic tradition, and, finally, evaluate it with a view to its possible significance for the future of philosophy.
