Mechanists hope we will be able to do something practical with this knowledge, but whether we can or not does not change the soundness of what we know. For this reason, mechanists commonly emphasize a prediction goal. Prediction is scientifically fundamental in their system because it is how correspondence between a model of the world and the actual world is assessed. Mechanists deemphasize an influence goal, which is viewed merely as an applied extension of fundamental knowledge.

Put another way, the goal of philosophizing is nothing more than clarity and responsibility. It is to say, “This is what I assume. Precisely this. ” It is important to keep this goal in mind, because there is an enormous temptation to use philosophy to bludgeon those outside one’s own philosophical camp. This is an especially delicious form of useless activity if you criticize the assumptions and values of your intellectual adversary, because you are then in the untouchable position of laying waste to others’ assumptions and values by virtue of empirical/logical analysis secretly based on your own assumptions and values.
