Book chapter

Экспериментальная философия 2.0: новое вино в старых мехах?

С. 119-128.

In this article the author compares two historical phenomena: experimental philosophy of the XVII century and the modern “experimental philosophy”, having the identical name. Although the name is the same and it expresses the same protest against speculative philosophical thought, the nature of these two types of experimental philosophy is different. The experimental philosophy of the XVII century was working out its own approaches to the research of the reality and finally developped into modern natural sciences, the modern type of experimental philosophy applies already existing methods of other sciences. It applies these methods to study philosophical views and their cultural variations, becoming the impirical study of “popular philosophy”. Everithing indicates that it will stop to be philosophy, and turn into psychology or sociology of ideas and world-views.
