as a student currently in an analytic philosophy program, it’s often expected that i should love the discipline of metaphysics. but i fuckin hate it! it’s all a bunch of a priori nonsense that seems to have absolutely no regard for the role that our senses are playing in metaphysics. analytics regard things like idealism, anti-realism, and anti-metaphysics as complete absurdity, and in doing so, they completely disregard a lot of brilliant philosophers. what ends up in the analytic discipline of metaphysics is just tautological nonsense over concepts that have no real metaphysical standing, all in virtue of the platonic form of truth, objectivity, and the god’s eye omniscience.
