The article analyses two peculiarities of analytic philosophy most often chosen today as an object of criticism by its opponents: lack of interest in the real world (horror mundi) and avoiding the subject (horror sui). The relation is explored between linguistic nominalism, typical for certain period of development of analytic philosophy in the 20th century, and Richard Rorty’s pragmatic ethnocentrism. It is shown that Rorty articulates the “metaphysical fears” of analytic philosophy better than analytic philosophy itself. It is argued that these “metaphysical fears” can be overcome on the ground of methodological personalism and modal realism.
