This course explores topics in Anglo-American Philosophy, a blanket term covering questions and approaches which emerged as predominate in many English-speaking universities in the UK and North America in the 20th Century. Its hallmark is the thesis that philosophical reflection on language provides a methodological framework for addressing traditional philosophical problems. Its main branches include analytic philosophy, post-analytic philosophy, and philosophical pragmatism. The specific topics will vary from term to term, and may include such things as ‘ordinary language’ philosophy, logical positivism, theory of action and belief, the language of science and mathematics, logical analysis, and the relationship of truth and meaning.
