The fact that the principal difference between the two settings is sociological does not mean that the questions themselves are not genuinely philosophical. but they are not such as to have generated the problems in question. there is currently a significant amount of dissatisfaction directed toward AP on account of what it is perceived to have done to academic philosophy. then it is simply not responsible in this case. and their long neglect simply reaffirms the importance of asking them now. philosophical commitments.

Many academic disciplines have also generated philosophical inquiry. At the beginning of a chapter or subsection, for example, Hegel states a philosophical view often to argue (by indirect proof or re­ductio ad absurdum) against that view, though sometimes only to argue against a defective account or justification of that view. Hetried to justify philosophy by using science and mathematics. ... Above all else, Logical Positivism was anti-metaphysical; nothing can be learned about the world, it held, except through the methods of the empirical sciences. �The Positivists sought a method for showing both (1) when a theory that seemed to be about the world was really metaphysical and (2) that such a theory was, in fact, meaningless, and this they found in the principle of verification. �In its positive form, the principle said that the meaning of any statement that is really about the world is given by the methods employed for verifying its truth or falsity - the only allowable methods being, ultimately, those of observation and experiment. �In its negative form, the principle said that no statement could both be a statement about the world and have no method of verification attached to it. �Its negative form was the weapon used against metaphysics and for the vindication of science as the only possible source of knowledge about the world. �The principle would, thus, class as meaningless many philosophical and religious theories that purport to say something about the world but provide no way of testing the truth of the statements; for example, in religion it would render suspect the statement that God exists, which, being metaphysical, would be, strictly speaking, meaningless.
