The Problem of Analytic Philosophy*

Joseph Agassi, Ian C. Jarvie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Dainton and Robinson’s Companion traces lines of descent of analytic philosophy from ancestors. They characterize analytic philosophy as a movement, a tradition, a style, and a commitment to the values of clarity and rigor. Critics of the ancestral movements and of analytic philosophy as such are conspicuous by their absence. The sociology of the spread of analytic philosophy is ventured, updating the original effort by Gellner.
