PHH4620: 20th Century Philosophy: Anglo-American Tradition 3
Prerequisite:  One course in philosophy other than foreign culture. The history of philosophy in the present century in the English-speaking world is marked by a turn away from speculative metaphysics toward the logical analysis of language. This course traces the history of that development from Russell through Wittgenstein and the "logical positivists" up to the present trend toward applied ethics.
