Has modem philosophy taken a "practical turn?" If such a turn requires the first emphasis on practicality, then probably not. Prior philosophy has not discarded or neglected practicality. But a "turn" might instead be understood as a profound transformation.' Even if philosophy's practical concern is not new, perhaps its targets, methods, or character have changed significantly.
