An in-depth heritage of the linguistic flip in analytic philosophy, from a number one thinker of language

This is the second one of 5 volumes of a definitive historical past of analytic philosophy from the discovery of contemporary good judgment in 1879 to the tip of the 20 th century. Scott Soames, a number one thinker of language and historian of analytic philosophy, offers the fullest and so much specific account of the analytic culture but released, person who is unrivaled in its chronological diversity, issues lined, and intensity of remedy. targeting the key milestones and distinguishing them from detours, Soames offers a seminal account of the place the analytic culture has been and the place apparently to be heading.

Volume 2 presents a thorough account of the recent imaginative and prescient in analytical philosophy initiated through Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, its assimilation through the Vienna Circle of Moritz Schlick and Rudolf Carnap, and the next flowering of logical empiricism. With this “linguistic turn,” philosophical research turned philosophy itself, and the discipline’s acknowledged objective used to be reworked from advancing philosophical theories to formalizing, systematizing, and unifying technology. as well as exploring the successes and screw ups of philosophers who pursued this imaginative and prescient, the publication describes how the philosophically minded logicians Kurt Gödel, Alfred Tarski, Alonzo Church, and Alan Turing stumbled on the scope and boundaries of common sense and constructed the mathematical concept of computation that ushered within the electronic period. The book’s account of this pivotal interval closes with a looking exam of the fight to maintain moral normativity in a systematic age.
