Contemporary Philosophy, Analytic Philosophy

 

All,
We've decided to do an overview of Analytic Philosophy, and we'll be taking a look at three philosophers over the next three meetings.
Gottlob Frege is not a well-known name, but he is the guy who is credited with starting the Analytic Philosophy movement--which is by far the biggest thing going in Philosophy departments in England and the U.S..  We'll cover Frege at the next meeting, December 9th.
Frege will be followed by evenings with Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein -- dates to be determined, because of the holidays.
I've posted several online references for Frege.  You can find them under DISCUSSIONS --> MESSAGE BOARD --> MONDAY NIGHT CONTEMPORARY PHILOSOPHY --> GOTTLOB FREGE.
See you DEC9.

    "Gottlob," by the way, translates to "praise God" in English.

    Any of you who decide to sign up but find that the meeting has reached its limit of 15 people...just come anyway.

    I'd hate for anyone to miss their chance to get to know Gottlob.

    Any thoughts on the best book to introduce and explain Frege's work? I noticed there is a Frege Reader and a book called Frege Explained.
