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.
