Philosophy of Language

The significant role of language in philosophy is as ancient as philosophy itself, although as a method of philosophy its history is just about a century old. Leaving out the ancient we shall try to provide a birds eye view of last century’s developments in thinking about language and philosophy. Needless to emphasize the importance of L. Wittgenstein and those who were inspired by him in the 1940s and later.

We shall also endeavour to highlight the issues related to language raised by the traditions originating from F. Saussure, post-structuralism and their ilk. Thus the course aims to provide a bird’s eye view on the relation between philosophy, truth, meaning, and language and related problems of current interest.
