This identity of philosophical differences with semantic differences offers the foundation for a controversy opposed to the naturalization of the subject material of philosophy for it includes that now not all suggestions are empirical options and never all classifications are empirical classifications. Collingwood's clarification of why philosophy has a particular subject material therefore constitutes a transparent problem to the undertaking of radical empiricism.
