I Don't Care About the Analytic/Continental Distinction in Academic Philosophy
and neither should you. There’s well-written, carefully argued, historically-informed philosophy, and then there is mush. It’s very easy to write mush about Kant or Foucault or Kripke or property instantiation or the meaning of Being or norms of assertion, and it’s very hard to say anything that is clear, correct, and meaningful about anything.
If someone in a sociology department wants to research the effect of certain institutions and hiring practices and etc. on the quality of philosophical output sorted by subject matter and by authorial self-description as ‘analytic’ or ‘Continental,’ fine. But philosophers should probably quit wasting time on this stuff and spend more time improving their philosophical output.
