Alfred Tarski: Philosophy of Language and Logic (History of Analytic Philosophy) Douglas Patterson
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
The doctrines most often called "analytic philosophy" are logical positivism and logical atomism; more loosely, the term can refer to ordinary language philosophy, common sense philosophy, or some amalgam of the above. (See the section вЂњLanguage and Continental PhilosophyвЂќ below.).

The history of philosophical discussions suggests this is not an easy task. In fact, we do not think it is an overstatement to say that Western analytic philosophy is, in many respects, undergoing a crisis where there is considerable urgency and anxiety regarding the status of intuitive analysis. Is the student expressing a desire to know more about the history of analytic philosophy or is the student expressing a desire to know more about contemporary "analytic" philosophy as practiced in Anglophone universities and journals?

I was a philosophy minor in college, from which I graduated two years ago, but never got a chance to take many classes in logic and dabbled mainly in older continental thinkers and simple applied ethics.

Labels: history of analytic, logic, Quine, Tarski In his 'Philosophy of Logic' (1970), Quine discusses the difference between objectual (referential) and substitutional quantification precisely with respect to the size of the language. In the midst of all the problems stemming from the discovery and applications of non-Euclidean geometry, logicians like Alfred Tarski and Stanislaw Lesniewski, wrote classic papers on the mereology of objects. Primary importance of sense and reference in the construction of meaning, Kurt GГ¶del's Incompleteness Theorem, Bertrand Russell's theory of definite descriptions, Karl Popper's theory of falsificationism, Alfred Tarski's Semantic Theory of Truth. Major topics include epistemology, philosophy of language, free will, metaphysics, metaethics, normative ethics, machine ethics, axiology, philosophy of mind, and more. For continental philosophers, however, the philosophy of language tends to be dealt with, not as a separate topic, but as a part of logic, history or politics. All I wanted to mention here is that Alfred Tarski had already shown, in 1936's "On the Concept of Logical Consequence," that Quine's characterization is a necessary condition for a sentence to be a logical truth, but not a sufficient one.
