Example text

1, 7. 8 The Odyssey situates Calypso’s enchanted isle in the far west, the land of the setting sun, and describes the isle in images redolent of death. In contrast, Odysseus’s arrival at his own island, far to the east, a land of the rising sun, is depicted in imagery suggestive of rebirth. Another thing that is odd about the protagonist, and the implicit values, of the Odyssey from the orthodox standpoint is that Odysseus is not a conventional hero, the kind depicted in the Iliad. He is strong, brave, and skillful in fighting, but he is no Achilles (who had a divine mother) or even Ajax; and he relies on guile, trickery, and outright deception to a degree inconsistent with what we have come to think of as heroism or with its depiction in the Iliad.

Logical positivists had rejected the aprioristic methods used to establish metaphysical propositions and thus banished to the outer darkness theology, moral philosophy, transcendental speculations, and political theory—in other words, much of the orthodox philosophical tradition. By doing these things they had set the stage for a renewal of pragmatism. Orthodox versus Recusant Pragmatism With its precision and rigor, logical positivism made the classical American pragmatists, especially James and Dewey, seem woolly and verbose.

Neither response to the new observation is superior to the other. This means that logical (“necessary”) truths are not immune from empirical refutation, as genuine tautologies would be. Also, and more important, it means that the decision whether to respond to a new experience by altering a logical or an empirical belief is an expedient one, in the same way that disconfirming evidence can be accommodated either by changing one’s theory or by rejecting the evidence. ”36 34.
