Great post, Eric. I read the Unger interview earlier, and found it utterly convincing. Meaning: if this guy passes for one of our best and brightest, our discipline is in need of rudder, sail, and compass. On a somewhat related note, have you ever written on Dreben's claim that philosophy is garbage, but the history of garbage is scholarship?
Excellent post - and thanks for making me aware of Stone's work. I agree that Carnap's legacy was in conceiving philosophy as a discipline akin to physics (explicit in the first preface of the Aufbau) - leading to all the things you mention, plus that it can be done ahistorically, it hosts multiple subdisciplines in which piecemeal progress is made ("stone upon stone"), it must employ variables, etc. It ends up looking pretty comical, really.
