"The Linguistic U-turn:" will philosophy survive?

As the X-Phi, or experimental philosophy, blog, Eric Schwitzgebel describes what he refers to as "the linguistic u-turn," a reference to the linguistic turn, suggesting that as a method of propositional analysis, analytical philosophy may be mortally wounded.

Thanks to an ability to bring data to bear on problems in philosophy, reasoning that relies exclusively on an a priori understanding of concepts has become increasingly irrelevant; experimental philosophers are busy reinforcing that point by tackling, with the aid of well designed experiment, our intuitions about culpability, responsibility and negligence, among many others.
