Metaphysicians and 'misplaced poets' (A. J. Ayer)

«Among those who recognise that if philosophy is to be accounted a genuine branch of knowledge it must be defined in such a way as to distinguish it from metaphysics, it is fashionable to speak of the metaphysician as a kind of misplaced poet.»

A. J. Ayer. Language, Truth and Logic, 1935.
