Arne Naess’s statistical approach to philosophy

My article ‘The experimental and the empirical: Arne Naess’s statistical approach to philosophy’ is now published online by the British Journal for the History of Philosophy.

It will be included in a special issue of the journal on Experimental Philosophy and the History of Philosophy. My article considers both the similarities and the differences between Naess’s Empirical Semantics from the mid twentieth century, and experimental philosophy of the present day, and reflects on what these might tell us about attitudes to philosophical methodology.
