I keep hearing that logical positivism has been dead since the 1950s, yet it seems that most philosophy conducted nowadays STILL tends to avoid discussion of metaphysics altogether. Is the subject matter simply too difficult? The main new area in analytic philosophy over the last fifty years is the study of philosophy of mind. I don't think this leads us any closer to analyzing metaphysical questions; the same metaphysical questions exist everywhere else universe where there is no living life to be analyzed.
