I love it that Ruse, like Jeremy Stangroom and Jean Kazez, characterizes our philosophical naivité and so-called stridency as “immoral.” Do these philosophers even know what “immorality” is?I have never linked philosophical naivete with immorality. Not once. I've never linked stridency with immorality either.
I did say this and this; but the issue there was over-the-top personal hostility, character assassination, cyber-bullying. Should we use the word "immoral" for such things? Why (on earth) not?
