Empty Ideas

A Critique of Analytic Philosophy

Peter Unger

  • Exposes how little has been accomplished, or even attempted, in the core of academic philosophy
  • Offers a powerful critique of contemporary metaphysics and epistemology including the work of such brilliant thinkers as Saul Kripke, Donald Davidson, David Lewis and Hilary Putnam
  • Defines the difference between "concretely substantial" and " concretely empty" ideas
