Glock on analytic philosophy and history
Chapter four of Glock’s wide-ranging and incisive book ‘What is Analytic Philosophy?’, which is entitled ‘History and Historiography’, explores the relationship between analytic philosophy and history. The chapter is presented as a critical examination of the idea that ‘analytic philosophy can be conceived by reference to time’ (89) since, the suggestion goes, ‘what sets analytic philosophy apart is its attitude to history’ (88). But the chapter is also a detailed exploration of a more general (philosophical) question: What attitude should philosophers take towards the history of philosophy, towards the history of ideas, and towards history in general? The answer favoured by Glock to that question is what he calls ‘weak historicism’ which, he claims, happens to be the attitude taken by most analytic philosophers.

Abstract

Chapter four of Glock’s wide-ranging and incisive book ‘What is Analytic Philosophy?’, which is entitled ‘History and Historiography’, explores the relationship between analytic philosophy and history. The chapter is presented as a critical examination of the idea that ‘analytic philosophy can be conceived by reference to time’ (89) since, the suggestion goes, ‘what sets analytic philosophy apart is its attitude to history’ (88). But the chapter is also a detailed exploration of a more general (philosophical) question: What attitude should philosophers take towards the history of philosophy, towards the history of ideas, and towards history in general? The answer favoured by Glock to that question is what he calls ‘weak historicism’ which, he claims, happens to be the attitude taken by most analytic philosophers.
