"Naturalization� nowadays is often recommended
to cure all kinds of philosophical worries and solve old
problems. There might be an "epistemology naturalized�
and a naturalized philosophy of language. But "naturalism�
is understood in quite different fashions. It might be meant
as a metaphysical thesis more or the less equivalent to
materialism, or it concerns the way of doing things
I will be concerned with partially explicating
methodological naturalism in the philosophy of language.
The essential question is
(Q1) What is meant by giving a naturalistic
explanation of some kind of linguistic behaviour?
And assuming some answer to this question, the
essential problem is
(Q2) Do these naturalistic explanations explain
anything at all?
