Abstract

Cappelen’s Philosophy without intuitions (Cappelen, 2012) challenges the widespread conception of philosophy as an intuition-driven discipline. Drawing on case studies of philosophical texts, Cappelen argues that in-depth studies of contemporary philosophical practices do not warrant that description. In this talk, we pursue Cappelen's question, and show some results from a methodological survey of philosophical texts. But we have a narrower focus than Cappelen: our study concerns the role of intuitions in semantics and pragmatics. More specifically, we focus on some central contributions to the discussion of the semantics/pragmatics interface (e.g. Stanley & Szabó 2000; Recanati 2010).
