Adherents and critics of those traditions are likely to assurnethat they're diametrically antagonistic, that their roots, issues and methods contradict one another, and that no reconciliation is feasible. In contradistinction Russell derives either traditions from the typical root of the dissatisfaction with the arguments opposed to speculative philosophy. those in line with the writer go away a lacuna - convinced elementsof our Weltanschaaung were got rid of, yet they can not be got rid of with out alternative lest we've an incomplete international view, so incomplete in reality that it can't be manageable. in line with Russell a part of this vacuum is taken up by means of the analytical culture yet this practice isn't really in a position to taking on the rest of it. That component of the vacant area is even though taken up via the dialectical tradi­ tion, which in flip can't itself deal with the complete of the matter. therefore the 2 reactions to the dying of speculative philosophy seem to be complementary in not less than this feeling. however the writer is going additional, for based on hirn the analytical arguments themselves in actual fact element to the emergence of dialectical difficulties, and the dialectical difficulties themselves want a few such historical past to arise.

Philosophical puzzlement is what happens when the role of a concept is obscured; and new philosophical theories are essentially theories in which the role of a concept is either misrepresented or deliberatel y al ber-ed, Whether philosophical grammar of this kind can in fact diminish the area of philosophical puzzlement remains to be seen.
