Peter M. Simons

Analytic Philosophy


ISBN: 978-3-88405-805-3

Price: €3.50 (including 19 % tax)


The term 'analytic philosophy' is an inexact one, without a dear or standardly accepted signification. It may be used historically, to designate several strands within 20th-century philosophy, or loosely, to denote a broad stream in contemporary philosophy which is considered to be continuing the issues and ways of doing philosophy characteristic of these movements. A number of adjectives have been suggested as alternatives to the rather unsatisfactory 'analytic': 'exact philosophy' is perhaps the most promising, though it may suggest excessive mathematization. 'Scientific philosophy' is too redolent
in English of scientism, though the German equivalent 'wissenschaftliche Philosophie' carries just the right connotations. 'Rigorous philosophy' recalls Edmund Husserl's philosophy as a rigorous science (strenge Wissenschaft). Simons reviews the historical movements within analytic philosophy before returning to consider what the term perhaps ought to signify.
Classification: Analytic Realism / Logical Atomism / Logical Positivism / Wittgenstein and Ordinary Language Philosophy / Metaphysics and Mind / Dominance, Diversity and Disillusion / What is Analytic Philosophy?
