Alexander George (Section 01)
Language and the nature of meaning, the search for a philosophical method, and the limits of logic and intelligibility - these are central concerns that drove the pioneers of analytic philosophy. We shall explore these themes through classic readings by some of the seminal figures of the tradition: Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Rudolf Carnap, and W. V. Quine.
Prerequisite: one course in philosophy. Professor George.
