Philosophers have been spending a considerable amount of time discussing whether or not they are doing anything of substance. This of course is the 'end of philosophy' debate. I am perverse enough to bring myself out of my dogmatic slumber to join the debate. I am also perverse enough, or at least out of my slumber enough, to join with the nay sayers such as Richard Rorty, Kai Nielsen, and others who declare the end of the tradition, at least with respect to what has been called Metaphysical Realism, or its alter-ego, Idealism. My contribution to the philosophy of philosophy is the observation that at least in some areas philosophy has, and rightly so, lost its subject matter.
