G. E. M. Anscombe wrote this at the beginning of Modern Moral Philosophy where she claimed that one should not do moral philosophy today:
...that should be laid aside at any rate until we have an adequate philosophy of psychology.
In her introduction to Wittgenstein's Tractatus, she wrote the following claiming there is no epistemology in the Tractatus: (page 27)
...Wittgenstein evidently did not think that epistemology had any bearing on his subject-matter. We find epistemology put in its place at 4.1121: 'Psychology is no nearer related to philosophy than is any other natural science. The theory of knowledge is the philosophy of psychology.'
I get the feeling the term "psychology" or even "philosophy of psychology" has special, negative meanings for both of them, but I may be wrong. I am looking for some clarification on what they mean by psychology or the philosophy of psychology.
