RELI3096 Contemporary Analytic Philosophy (3 units)
Contemporary Western philosophy is divided into two main traditions. Continental philosophy prevails in countries such as Germany and France, whereas analytic philosophy, pioneered by the German logician Gottlob Frege, is prominent in the English-speaking world. This course introduces the development of some main ideas under the analytic tradition since the late 19th century. It covers five topic areas: the early founders; logic, language and metaphysics; epistemology and mind; ethics and political philosophy, and finally, methods in philosophy.
