IAI Video Debate: Did the Linguistic Turn Take Us Down the Wrong Path?

realityOur friends at The Institute of Art and Ideas have posted a new video debate on the philosophy of language. The panel includes John Searle, post-postmodernist Hilary Lawson and logician Michael Potter. Their website describes the debate as follows: Language has been the focus of philosophical enquiry for the last century. But was the 'linguistic turn' a wrong turn, leading to a barren discipline without 'real world' influence? Is it time for a fresh approach to the big issues, or would this be a capitulation to intellectual fantasy?

Check out the debate and visit IAI for more philosophical discussion.
