課程概述

It is said that contemporary Anglo-American philosophy took the "linguistic turn" in the twentieth century. The linguistic turn began with the three major figures, i.e., Frege, Russell, and Wittgenstein, and with the rise of logical positivism (and later logical empiricism). Frege and Russell set up the beginning stage of analytic philosophy by initiating studies in the foundations of mathematics logic and philosophy of language. There then came Quine, Kripke, and Putnam who make great contributions in logics, semantics, and ontology. The other development began with the rise of logical positivism deeply influenced by Wittgenstein. Logical positivism then dominated studies in the philosophy of science concerning issues such as the demarcation of science, the nature of scientific explanation and theory, and theoretical reduction and unity. 

課程目標
This course is a general survey of contemporary Anglo-American philosophy. Due to the limit of time, not even all core topics shall be covered in this course. We select some major themes in logics and semantics and focus on general introductions to the main issues and ideas these philosophers have dealt with.
