Abstract :
In this paper, it is argued that the development of Carnap’s methodological approach (from rational reconstruction to explication) can be framed as a development of weakening conditions of adequacy for transformative conceptual analysis. It is then argued that these conditions are also guiding for the contemporary revisionary project of conceptual engineering.
