He exhibits what is the big deal about ordinary language in his book: The Labyrinth of Language. There he deals with the great issues in philosophy as he speaks plainly to all who will attend. He is not a silly person. …

Analytic Philosophy and History of Philosophy

Analytic Philosophy and History of Philosophy

Analytic Philosophy and History of Philosophy (Mind Association Occasional) by Tom Sorell, G. A. J. Rogers
Oxford University Press | June 2, 2005 | English | ISBN: 0199278997 | 240 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Philosophy written in English is overwhelmingly analytic philosophy, and the techniques and predilections of analytic philosophy are not only unhistorical but anti-historical, and hostile to textual commentary. Analytic usually aspires to a very high degree of clarity and precision of formulation and argument, and it often seeks to be informed by, and consistent with, current natural science. In an earlier era, analytic philosophy aimed at agreement with ordinary linguistic intuitions or common sense beliefs, or both. All of these aspects of the subject sit uneasily with the use of historical texts for philosophical illumination. In this book, ten distinguished philosophers explore the tensions between, and the possibilities of reconciling, analytic philosophy and history of philosophy.

The Early Heidegger's Philosophy of Life: Facticity, Being, and Language

English | 2012 | ISBN: 0823242196 | ISBN-13: 9780823242191 | 288 pages | PDF | 20,1 MB

In his early lecture courses, Martin Heidegger exhibited an abiding interest in human life. He believed that human life has philosophical import while it is actually being lived; language has philosophical import while it is being spoken. In this book, Scott Campbell traces the development of Heidegger's ideas about factical life through his interest in Greek thought and its concern with Being.

Philosophers have had an interest in language from the earliest times but the twentieth century, with its so-called 'linguistic turn' in philosophy, has seen a huge expansion of work focused specifically on language and its foundations. No branch of philosophy has been unaffected by this shift of emphasis. It is timely at the end of the century to review and assess the vast range of issues that have been developed and debated in this central area.
