(p.110) Conclusion
Why We Need Ordinary Language Philosophy

Sandra Laugier

Daniela Ginsburg

University of Chicago Press

This book concludes by reaffirming the opposition between two kinds of philosophy of language. The logical analysis of language on the one hand and the philosophy of ordinary language on the other seem, ultimately, to come together in their shared criticism of well-anchored conceptions and in a certain philosophical radicalness. This radicalness might be defined in terms of a rejection of traditional empiricism, but it might also be defined as the invention of a new sort of empiricism. Austin's goal is indeed to redefine the given and the data of experience in order to pave the way for “a true and comprehensive science of language.” .

Keywords:   philosophy of language, logical analysis, ordinary language, philosophical radicalness, traditional empiricism, austin, science of language
