*I am deeply grateful to my friends Zeev Bechler, Lewis Feuer, Dan Garber, Zanvel Klein, David Klass, Bob Richards, Jean Saindon, Ben-Ami Scharfstein, Miriam Shuchman and Stephen Toulmin for having read, discussed and commented on earlier versions of this essay. In particular, I owe special thanks to Ben-Ami Scharfstein, who was the first to introduce me to the complexity and subtlety of the psychology of philosophy as a meta-philosophical field, and to Stephen Toulmin, who helped me to bring this paper to its final form. In addition I would like to thank the Marsden Foundation for providing a grant that made this study possible.
