More complex propositions, called molecular propositions, are built up out of atomic propositions via the logical connectives—such as “… or …,” “… and …,” and “… not …”—and the truth-value of the molecular proposition is in each case a function of the truth-values of its component atomic propositions.

The problem of justifying first epistemic principles is very old. By incorporating elements of the classical empiricist epistemology of John Locke, this progressive principle has become transformed into the extremely popular position known as constructivism, according to which each student in a classroom constructs his or her own individual body of understandings even when all in the group are given what appears to be the same stimulus or educational experience. (A consequence of this is that a classroom of thirty students will have thirty individually-constructed, and possibly different, bodies of “knowledge”, in addition to that of the teacher.) There is also a solipsistic element here, for constructivists also believe that none of us—teachers included—can directly access the bodies of understandings of anyone else; each of us is imprisoned in a world of our own making.

Since I think both theses are wrong, I feel strongly about getting them out in the open where they can be jumped up and down on. "The first is semantic pragmatism: the idea that intensional content is to be explicated as some sort of `know how', hence in epistemic terms. I am particularly conscious of having to skip any discussion of the development of mathematical logic in the late nineteenth century and its interesting and illustrative intersections with the British positivistic tradition. the introduction of these new paradigms did relatively little to change the general methodological features of the Newtonian paradigm. the crisis precipitated by the advance of the sciences. it enabled ‘linguistic’ symbols to be manipulated with the mechanistic precision of a mathematical calculus. and in a way that averted the crisis precipitated by the rise of psychology as a separate science – hence its acceptance counts as a further case of the retreat of philosophy in response to the advance of Newtonian-paradigm science. the Newtonian paradigm was almost completely realized in philosophy.

Paradigms, according to Kuhn, are ‘universally recognized scientific achievements that for a time provide model problems and solutions to a community of practitioners’ (1970: viii). It seems that the right thing to do would be to veer right. If you try to deny such a proposition (such as saying, "It is not the case that bachelors are unmarried"), you contradict yourself. While some writing in the analytical tradition is truly awful, it is not considered a merit (I understand Wittgenstein wrote so badly only because he suffered from bad dyslexia, not because it was socially expected).

His theory about children as commodities sounds exactly like the reason why I gave up on delving into philosophy: intellectual game playing with little or no relation to actual life. The doctrines most often called "analytic philosophy" are logical positivism and logical atomism; more loosely, the term can refer to ordinary language philosophy, common sense philosophy, or some amalgam of the above.

I will also discuss applications to Carnapian projects in epistemology, the philosophy of language and mind, metaphysics, the philosophy of science, and metaphilosophy. Although Kant held that objective knowledge of the world required the mind to impose a conceptual or categorical framework on the stream of pure sensory data—a framework including space and time themselves—he maintained that things-in-themselves existed independently of our perceptions and judgments; he was therefore not an idealist in any simple sense.

Without the proper tools, people would be a burden instead of an asset. He concluded that, far from being a truth-functional calculus, language has no universally correct structure—that is, there is no such thing as an ideal language. These latter questions with a global focus seem to track a request like, “What is it all about?” Indeed, there is a profound human impulse to seek a sweeping, deep explanation, context, or narrative through which to interpret existence, and then to move beyond localized foci by living into this universal, totalizing narrative.
