1. IMPORTANCE OF THE SUBJECT In 1900, in A Critical Exposition of the Philosophy of Leihniz, Russell made the following assertion: "That all sound philosophy should begin with an analysis of propositions is a truth too evident, perhaps, to demand a proof." 1 Forty years later, the interest aroused by this notion had not decreased. C. J. Ducasse wrote in the Journal of Philosophy: "There is perhaps no question more basic for the theory of knowledge than that of the nature of 2 propositions and their relations to judgments, sentences, facts and inferences." Today, the great number of publications on the subject is proof that it is still of interest. One of the problems raised by propositions, the problem of deter mining whether propositions, statements or sentences are the primary bearers of truth and falsity, is even in the eyes of Bar-Hillel, "one of the major items that the future philosophy oflanguage will have to discuss." 3 gave a correct summary of the situation when he wrote in his Ph. Devaux Russell (1967): Since Peano and Schroder who, in fact, adhered more faithfully to Boole's logic of classes, the logical and epistemological status of the proposition together with its analysis have not ceased to be the object of productive philosophical controversies. And especially so since the establishment of contemporary symbolic logic, the foundations 4 of which have been laid out by Russell and Whitehead. * 2."

Le Langage de la Perception (French, Paperback): John Langshaw Austin Le Langage de la Perception (French, Paperback)
John Langshaw Austin; Translated by Paul Gochet
R394 Discovery Miles 3 940 Out of stock

La tradition empiriste considere que le connaissance du monde qui nous entoure se fait au moyen des sens qui nous en offrent une representation. Lorsque cette perception n'est pas illusoire, c'est-a-dire lorsque les sens ne trompent pas, elle considere que le sujet peut fonder sur cette perception une connaissance vraie. Austin critique de maniere devastatrice tous les arguments qui soutiennent cette vision scolastique des choses et, en cela digne heritier du realisme oxonien, montre qu'il n'y a aucun sens a pretendre que les sens representent quoi que ce soit, ni par consequent qu'ils nous trompent, ni a vouloir fonder la connaissance sur la perception. S'appuyant, sur l'usage ordinaire du langage, considere comme criteriel, plutot que sur une recontruction logique jugee illusoire, il propose une autre logique de la perception et de la connaissance qui lui permet de rejeter toutes les positions philosophiques idealistes ou realistes en revenant a la position ordinaire de l'homme de la rue .
