RETHINKING PHILOSOPHY FOR THE RESURRECTION OF THE OBJECT OF KNOWLEDGE
The author of the paper starts by calling our attention to problems that make it necessary to rethink philosophy and puts her finger on one common factor at the origin of these problems. This is what she calls "the loss of the object of knowledge" in epistemology. After she shows how the object of knowledge is lost in two prevailing epistemologies of the twentieth century-in pragmatism and logical empiricism-and the consequences of this loss for our lives, she gives examples of rethinking certain philosophical questions. These are the questions of what knowledge is and problems of norms related to the lack of distinction between epistemological kinds of norms. This rethinking also implies the necessity of rethinking philosophical education.
