This lecture deals with whether philosophy is aptly viewed as a science. Professor McGinn suggests that although philosophy is a priori conceptual analysis it is still a science – a formal science. Moreover, it can be described as empirical, natural, experimental science. The gulf between philosophy and the other sciences is therefore not as great as many have supposed. In the light of this re-classification, it might be best to re-name philosophy.
