Fish on Bacon and the Continental/Analytic Divide:

This is (not a gourmet recommendation, but) Stanley Fish's take on the ruckus between analytic and Continental philosophy. Fish's views came up in our discussion on the role of philosophy in the contemporary world. Here he does a nice job of giving some perspective on that dispute as well as making the point that these ways of doing philosophy do not have inherent political agendas despite what you sometimes hear. Philosophers on both sides may have political agendas and may try to bolster their politics by suggesting the agenda is the inevitable result of one of these ways of doing philosophy---but the ways themselves do not dictate any such result. Or so Fish argues, and I am inclined to agree... That's "bacon" as in Francis Bacon, an early proponent of what is now called "naturalism," a major thread in analytic philosophy.
