Example text

From this alone it does not follow that German idealism should be interpreted in a metaphysical manner. There are nonetheless considerations deriving from the preceding discussion which cast doubt on the cogency of the nonmetaphysical, deflationary approach. These emerge if we attend to two ideas which have been particularly prominent in the new interpretations of German idealism. 43 The problem which this approach presents is the same as that presented by the soft naturalist’s appeal to perspective.

And it should be plain that for the soft naturalist to answer here, that the reality of irreducibles ‘derives from the natural order broadly conceived’, would be to merely draw attention to the further difficulty facing soft naturalism, of specifying the principle of unity of this order. Soft naturalists have a strategy which is relevant in response to these points, which I will come to in a moment, but if, as I will argue, it proves ineffective, then the limited force of anti-reductionist argumentation remains a serious problem for soft naturalism.

And this is essential for soft naturalism to offer itself as a rival form of naturalism: if the soft naturalist did not claim knowledge of ‘our place in the world’ – if he did not lay claim to a perspective on our perspectives, through which the latter are validated – then he would not be contradicting the hard naturalist. The reflexive move – the reference back to the reality of such-and-such to our concepts, our practices, taken on their own – thus misses the point: the hard naturalist will reasonably reply that it is not in doubt that our concepts and practices weigh with us, but that the whole issue concerns what it means, in the overall scheme of things, for something to be a practice of ours.
