By Neutral VINE VOICE on 23 Aug. 2013
Format: Hardcover
Analytic philosophy is the dominant philosophical tradition in the English-speaking world. It has expanded from its 'original concern with epidemiological and metaphysical questions in the philosophy of logic and mathematics (as in the case of Frege and Russell) and in ethics and the theory of judgement (in the case of Moore), it has ramified - via the linguistic turn (taken first by Wittgenstein) - into all spheres of philosophy". In addition to analytic philosophy of language, logic, mathematics, mind and science and analytic ethics there are 'fields as diverse as analytic aesthetics, analytic Marxism, analytical feminism, analytic theism and analytical Thomism'. Early analytic philosophy rejected metaphysics but there is now an 'analytic metaphysics'. The result is that analytic philosophy far from being characterised by clarity is confused and meaningless.

Analytic philosophy is the tradition that originated in the work of Gottlob Frege (1848-1925), Bertrand Russell (1872-1970, G E Moore (1873-1958) and Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951). When Russell and Moore rebelled against British idealism they did so on different grounds. Both wanted to uncover the fundamental constituents of propositions, Moore as a conceptual analysis and Russell within a broader programme of logical analysis. However, Russell failed to prove mathematics could be derived from purely logical propositions. What emerged was a system of propositional and predicate logic. According to Russell, 'That all sound philosophy should begin with an analysis of propositions, is a truth too evident, perhaps, to demand a proof'. The early period of analytic philosophy culminated in Wittgenstein's Tractatus.
