Maybe someone could also explain precisely what is meant by "English/Scottish philosophy". Does it have any philosophical meaning? Do philosophers from a certain territory have some association or adherence to ideas simply by virtue of being born in the same vicinty?Rachel0898 (talk) 06:48, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

My assumption has been that he's Scottish - he speaks with a Scots accent in video clips I've seen. It's possible not, however. In lieu of actually knowing, I've changed the category to 'British philosophers' (and the region to 'British philosophy') and I've removed the contradiction box from the top of the article. Not an ideal solution - if anyone can provide more info, that'd be helpful. Bobrovski (talk) 11:45, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
