This meeting, continuing our study of Analytical Philosophy, we’ll be discussing the rise and fall of “ordinary-language analysis,” which is otherwise known as “Oxford Philosophy.”
The IEP link has a wonderful discussion, and may be all you need. For more detail on the individuals involved, look at the Stanford links. I’ve supplied the Wikipedia links because they tell a bit about the life history of these folks.
Ordinary Language Philosophy - sometimes referred to as ‘Oxford’ philosophy
The Austin Philosophy Discussion Group (APDG) offers many opportunities for discussions of philosophy and philosophical issues. No advance preparation or knowledge is required, unless stated in the meeting description. All our meetings are free of charge, but we occasionally pass the hat to collect money for operating expenses. Look at the Money tab on Group Tools for an accounting.
Click on Calendar in the Meetup tab to see details about upcoming meetups. The types of meetups that we have are:

Also, our web site often features lively conversations, within a culture that values civil discourse.
"Civil discourse is engagement in discourse (conversation) intended to enhance understanding."
