Abstract

Recently there has been an increasing interest in metaphilosphy. The aim of philosophy has been examined, and the development of philosophy has been scrutinised. With the development of new approaches and methods, new problems arise. This paper introduces a collection that revisits some of the metaphilosophical issues, including philosophical progress and the aim of philosophy. The collection sheds new light on some old approaches, such as naturalism and ordinary language philosophy. It also explores new philosophical methods (such as digital philosophy of science, conceptual engineering, and the practice-based approach to logic) and their prospects.
