강연명: Analytic versus Synthetic Philosophy: the case for conceptual holism

Analytic philosophy, the dominant movement in English-speaking philosophy of the 20th and 21st centuries, is hostile to circularity, especially following Quine's attack on analyticity. But there is such a thing as benign circularity, and it embraces what I call conceptual holism. Examples include art and the aesthetic, memory and personal identity, belief and assertion, and concept and object. In defending conceptual holism, I assert a no-priority account; in contrast, the traditional aesthetic theory which defines art in terms of the aesthetic is a prioritising account. On my view, "art" and "aesthetic" belong with beauty, craft, criticism et al in a circle of inter-defined concepts. The novice cannot acquire, or manifest understanding of, one concept without the others. I do not define art in terms of the aesthetic, as the traditional aesthetic account does, but inter-define them. One must distinguish vicious circularity from benign elucidatory circularity. One rather neglected objection to the term "Analytic philosophy" is that philosophy involves synthesis as well as analysis. Synthetic philosophy, which conceptual holisms illustrate, should be the other half of the coin to analysis.
