ORIGINS OF ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY
An introduction to Analytic philosophy—the revolutionary early 20thcentury reorientation that shaped today’s philosophical landscape and catalyzed intellectual developments from physics to psychology to computer science. Readings explore the "linguistic turn,” the revolt against metaphysics and idealism, logical positivism, ordinary language philosophy, and Quine’s turn to holism and naturalism.
