I stress the difference between folk philosophy and philosophy proper primarily because I don’t think we can overlook the fact that much of traditional African folk-thought (like folk-thought in any culture) is, in Wiredu’s words, "primitive", "superstitious", and "backward". Theodore George focuses on post-Kantian continental philosophy, with emphasis on current receptions of German Idealism and Romanticism. The alleged party issues are never the important philosophic questions, and to be affiliated to a recognizable party is to be the slave of a non-philosophic prejudice in favour of a (usually non-philosophic) article of belief.

That conclusion also follows, of course, from the fact that pieces and whole traditions of great philosophy are plainly inconsistent. In that book, Cohen attempted to apply the tools of logical and linguistic analysis to the elucidation and defense of Marx's materialist conception of history. A typical result of this arrogance was Quine’s claim that everything we talk about – water, electrons, numbers, mountains, you, me, the Olympian deities – is just a pragmatically convenient ‘posit’.

The meaning of a statement about the world is a prediction of what sense data you would experience if you were to be in a particular situation. Yet, perhaps, at the level of enactment this is an explanation – or demonstration – of what the field is and of what philosophers of education try to do. So far, a well-organized shell with comparatively few texts. It is divided into three areas: metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics.
