Course description:

The proposed subject area for the conference is the history of analytic philosophy. Over the last decade or so, interest in the history of analytic philosophy has risen sharply, producing first class work that has significantly sharpened (and in many cases significantly altered) our understanding of our own philosophical roots. This proposed subject area is broad enough to allow papers on a variety of figures and topics, while focused enough to allow genuinely fruitful interchange between broad groups of conference participants. We will welcome papers on Frege, Russell, and Wittgenstein, of course, but also hope to see work on the logical positivists, Quine, and other figures less prominent in the conventional early analytic pantheon.
