ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: v, p. Series Title: International library of philosophy and scientific method. "British Analytic Philosophy in the Twentieth Century" examines three generations of analytic philosophers, who between them founded the modern discipline of analytic philosophy in Britain. The book explores how philosophers such as Bertrand Russell, A.J. Ayer, Gilbert Ryle and Isaiah Berlin believed in a link between German aggression in the twentieth century and the nineteenth-century philosophy . Major concerns in American and British philosophy in the 20th cent. have included formal logic, the philosophy of science, and epistemology. Leading early figures included G. E. Moore, Bertrand Russell, and Ludwig Wittgenstein ; Anglo-American philosophy was later exemplified by logical positivists like Rudolph Carnap. Originating in the pioneering work of Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore, and Ludwig Wittgenstein in the four decades around the turn of the twentieth century, analytic philosophy established itself in various forms in the s. After the Second World War, it developed further in North America, in the rest of Europe, and is now growing in influence as the dominant .

Analytic philosophy, also called linguistic philosophy, a loosely related set of approaches to philosophical problems, dominant in Anglo-American philosophy from the early 20th century, that emphasizes the study of language and the logical analysis of concepts. But it is also a historical fact that a variant of analytic philosophy has been developed which was expressly not a philosophy of language—Brentano’s school of descriptive psychology. The main innovation of this school was ‘the introduction of a new level of exactness into philosophy’ (Mulligan , p. 86).File Size: 43KB.
