(See Metaphilosophy [1990]: 91 and The Language of Philosophy, chap. 1.) His most important books are "The Structure of Metaphysics" (1955) and "Studies in Metaphilosophy" (1964). He also wrote "Philosophy and Illusion" (1968), "The Language of Philosophy: Freud and Wittgenstein" (1977), and "Cassandra in Philosophy" (1983).

Metaphilosophy (sometimes called philosophy of philosophy) is "the investigation of the nature of philosophy". Its subject matter includes the aims of philosophy, the boundaries of philosophy, and its methods. It is considered by some to be a subject apart from philosophy, while others see it as automatically a part of philosophy, and still others see it as a combination of these subjects. The interest in metaphilosophy led to the establishment of the journal "Metaphilosophy" in January 1970.

Morris Lazerowitz claims to have coined the term 'metaphilosophy' around 1940 and used it in print in 1942. Lazerowitz proposed that metaphilosophy is 'the investigation of the nature of philosophy'.

Some other philosophers treat the prefix "meta" as simply meaning '"about..."', rather than as referring to a metatheoretical 'second-order' form of philosophy, among them Rescher and Double. Others, such as Williamson, prefer the term "'philosophy of philosophy"' instead of 'metaphilosophy' as it avoids the connotation of a 'second-order' discipline that looks down on philosophy, and instead denotes something that is a part of it. Joll suggests that to take metaphilosophy as 'the application of the methods of philosophy to philosophy itself' is too vague, while the view that sees metaphilosophy as a 'second-order' or more abstract discipline, outside philosophy, "is narrow and tendentious".
The designations "metaphilosophy" and "philosophy of philosophy" have a variety of meanings, sometimes taken to be synonyms, and sometimes seen as distinct.
