 Experimental Philosophy: Metaphilosophy
One of these metaphilosophies takes the philosopher's task to be, at least in part, the mapping out of the structure of 'our' concepts of philosophical matters like AGENCY or KNOWLEDGE.
Because this metaphilosophy appeals to the superiority of the rational apperceptions of the specially enlightened, we can call this the "Platonic metaphilosophy".

The interview which follows is the result of our meeting with Dr. Hartshorne and his lovely wife, Dorothy, which took place over a two-day period (May 20-21, 1989) at their home in Austin.

There are, however, many other issues which emerged naturally in the course of our discussion with Dr. Hartshorne, which cannot be easily classified under these two topics.

 Science as Culture - Metaphilosophy
The way I approach metaphilosophy would cause him real grief and in more than one dimension.
He would be especially upset at my unabashedly psychologistic posture, since, if I should have learned anything from him, it would be that philosophical questions need to be carefully separated from their psychological, social and historical context in order to deal with them on their own abstracted terms.
For as the cover–page caricature of a dictionary definition of the term "metaphilosophy" is meant to suggest, I will be a metaphilosopher doggedly and devotedly pursuing Freudian explanations.
