Kantian Conceptual Geography

Oxford University Press

Chapter Three focuses on Thomas Kuhn, arguably the most famous philosopher of science of the last century, who contributed to epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics as well. By establishing that Kuhn can be understood as a global response-dependence theorist, the chapter examines Kuhn’s views to show that Kantianism can take the subjective source of empirical concepts, terms, or properties to be ethnocentric in scope. Conceptual, linguistic, and perceptual capacities can be had by subjects qua community member. Then the chapter considers the connection between Kantianism and incommensurability, which obtains between linguistic units (terms, sentences, theories, languages) that are not completely intertranslatable.

Keywords:   ethnocentrism, incommensurability, Kantianism, Kuhn, Thomas, response-dependence
