  • TITLE: Structuring a Philosophical Approach

    AUTHORS: Richard Startup

    KEYWORDS: Certainty, Wittgenstein, Scepticism, Language, The “Taken for Granted”

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Philosophy, Vol.9 No.4, October 15, 2019

    ABSTRACT: A framework is developed for understanding what is “taken for granted” both in philosophy and in life generally, which may serve to orient philosophical inquiry and make it more effective. The framework takes in language and its development, as well as mathematics, logic, and the empirical sphere with particular reference to the exigencies of life. It is evaluated through consideration of seven philosophical issues concerned with such topics as solipsism, sense data as the route to knowledge, the possible reduction of geometry to logic, and the existence and status of human rights. Various dichotomies and the notion of continuity are evidently highly strategic.
