PL 387 - Twentieth-Century Analytic Philosophy

(3.00 cr.)

Much of twentieth-century philosophy in the English-speaking world was dominated by analytic philosophy. Among its central tenets was the conviction that philosophical questions are best approached through careful "linguistic analysis." The writings of some of the most important representatives of this school of thought are examined, including Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore, Ludwig Wittgenstein, A. J. Ayer, J. L. Austin, and John Searle.

Prerequisite: PL 201  and one additional PL 200-level course.
