PHL 516

Foundations of Analytic Philosophy

The development of formal logic at the turn of the 20th Century promoted a certain philosophical style and method known as 'analytic philosophy'. Its proponents sought greater clarity and rigour than they found in traditional metaphysics, and brought to philosophy a new focus on language. The course examines works by such major figures as Frege, Russell, G.E. Moore, Wittgenstein, and the logical positivists, as well as their critics.
