About the Book

Analyticity, or the 'analytic/synthetic' distinction is one of the most important and controversial problems in contemporary philosophy. It is also essential to understanding many developments in logic, philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics. In this outstanding introduction to analyticity Cory Juhl and Eric Loomis cover the following key topics:

  • The origins of analyticity in the philosophy of Hume and Kant
  • Carnap's arguments concerning analyticity in the early twentieth century
  • Quine's famous objections to analyticity in his classic 'Two Dogmas of Empiricism' essay
  • The relationship between analyticity and central issues in metaphysics, such as ontology
  • The relationship between analyticity and epistemology
  • Analyticity in the context of the current debates in philosophy, including mathematics and ontology

Throughout the book the authors show how many philosophical controversies hinge on the problem of analyticity. Additional features include chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary of technical terms making the book ideal to those coming to the problem for the first time.
