Symposium on J. L. Austin, Hardback Book

Symposium on J. L. Austin Hardback

Part of the Routledge Revivals series



J. L. Austin (1911-1960) exercised in Post-war Oxford an intellectual authority similar to that of Wittgenstein in Cambridge.

Although he completed no books of his own and published only seven papers, Austin became through lectures and talks one of the acknowledged leaders in what is called `Oxford philosophy' or `ordinary language philosophy'.

Few would dispute that among analytic philosophers Austin stands out as a great and original philosophical genius.

Three volumes of his writing, published after his death, have become classics in analytical philosophy: Philosophical Papers; Sense and Sensibilia; and How to Do Things with Words. First published in 1969, this book is a collection of critical essays on Austin's philosophy written by well-known philosophers, many of whom knew Austin personally.

A number of essays included were especially written for this volume, but the majority have appeared previously in various journals or books, not all easy to obtain.
