    Artificial language philosophy (also called ‘ideal language philosophy’) is the position that philosophical problems are best solved or dissolved through a reform of language. Its underlying methodology, the development of languages for specific purposes, leads to a conventionalist view of language in general and of concepts in particular. I argue that many philosophical practices can be reinterpreted as applications of artificial language philosophy. And many factually occurring interrelations between the sciences and philosophy of science are justified and clarified by the assumption that an artificial language methodology is applied in both.
