Field: Philosophy
Course Title: Philosophy of Language
Course Code: Philosophy 208
Level: Undergraduate
Description: Language is the basis of communication, thought, and learning; it pervades all aspects of our lives. In the course, we shall reflect on both the philosophical understanding of language and on the relevance of language for philosophy. The relation of language and thought is one issue, a second being the relation of language and the world (the issue of "meaning" discussed in connection with the later Wittgenstein in particular). Furthermore, we shall discuss what the analysis of language can do for philosophical problems outside the philosophy of language (knowledge, existence, what is "good" philosophy?).
