The linguistic ;;epnyersion of one part of non-Marxist philosophy has been motivized by the effort to change the character of philosophy and caused the social, gnozeological and immanent-philosophical reasons. Its basis consists in a reduction of the object of philosophy to the formal logic analysis of the artificial and ordinary language, while the capacity of philosophy to solve, in the classical way, the old problems of metaphysics is intentionally — as philosophically irrelevant — rejected. It is the language that becomes the new basis for the solution of philosophical problems, while exceeding the limits of the language is qualified as an offence of the possibilities of philosophy. Philosophy becomes a linguistic matter with a characteristic language solipsism.
