Analyzing Analyticist

This is my rant against Analytic Philosophy after nearly being strangled to death by studying Analytic philosophers for nearly a year.

Let B stand for the the belief that Analytic Philosophical Reasoning is the best way to do philosophy.
Let S stand for the seriousness with which Analytic Philosophers take their enlightened position.
Let P stand for the prideful superciliousness which Analytic Philosophers hold for non-Analytic Philosophers.

Therefore, there is a belief B that is taken seriously S, and is then P used to look down upon the less enlightened.
In Anal code, the above would look roughly like:
BS, then P.

Let Toilet be a placeholder for BS and P.

  1. lol!

    Yeah, I don’t like analytic philosophy either. I had a philosophy of mind course last semester, and it drove me up a wall. “um, excuse me, HOW exactly do you all expect to come up with a complete and objective explanation for consciousness and the mind-body problem? It’s not as though you can stand outside of consciousness and lived body experience and figure out that it’s ‘really nothing more than x.'” To me it would be better to stop worrying about stupid questions, and work out a phenomenology of lived body experience etc. instead.

    Continental is way more fun!

    *end rant*

    I must call you soon. Sorry I’ve been a creep and haven’t talked to you in about five years!
