Course description: Analytic philosophy is a movement in, and style of, philosophy that began in Britain and America in the early 20th century, and continues to dominate academic philosophy in the English-speaking world. In this course, we examine some of the most important works of this movement. The topics we’ll cover include philosophical analysis, logical form, logical atomism, logical positivism and “the linguistic turn” in philosophy.
