Essay I. Discourse Relativity and Philosophy

Essay I. Discourse Relativity and Philosophy

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,203|Likes:
Published by D. S. Clarke
The central thesis of this essay is that the central task of philosophy is to investigate relationships between discourse frameworks as constituted by the distinctive vocabularies, topics, and governing rules of forms of discourse. This thesis is developed by examining some problems arising from overlaps between empirical descriptive, transactional, and religious narrative frameworks. Later chapters apply the thesis to relationships between prudential and moral forms of reasoning and between normative and legal frameworks. Use of discourse frameworks is characteristic of the institutional specializations of the sciences, law, religion, and the arts. Understanding relationships between frameworks is a means of overcoming the fragmentation within societies created by this specialization.
