Аналитическая философия

Питер Погосян в A Manual for Creating Atheists предлагает переводить слово faith во фразу pretending to know things you don't know и показывает, что из этого получается. Удивительным образом, он соединил здесь эпистемологические высказывания (действительно относящиеся к знанию) с какими-то другими высказываниями — касающимися доверия, или надежды, или свойств характера:



Faith and hope are not synonyms (говорит Погосян дальше). Sentences with these words also do not share the same linguistic structure and are semantically different—for example, one can say, "I hope it's so," and not "I faith it's so."

Казалось бы, как может интеллектуал, философ приводить такой чудовищный аргумент (да, одно слово может функционировать как существительное и глагол, другое — только как существительное, что с того?). А вот приводит же.

Впрочем, он не кругом чудовищный — только местами.
