6th Annual TiLPS History of Analytic Philosophy Workshop: The Global Reception of Russell’s Scientific Philosophy

On August 17 and 18, 2023, the Tilburg Center for Moral Philosophy, Epistemology, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) organizes the 6th annual TiLPS History of Analytic Philosophy workshop. This workshop aims to bring together scholars interested in a wide range of topics and thinkers from the history of analytic philosophy (broadly conceived). The theme of this year’s workshop is The Global Reception of Russell’s Scientific Philosophy.

The Global Reception of Russell’s Scientific Philosophy

During the first decades of the twentieth-century, the dissemination of Russell’s ideas played a crucial role for the spread of a novel approach to philosophy. It is well known that Russell’s scientific philosophy rapidly found a great deal of resonance among philosophers in the Anglo-Saxon world, eventually leading to the development of the analytic movement. Still, many questions regarding the reception of his scientific philosophy remain unresolved. Why did so many English and American philosophers align themselves with Russell’s concept of philosophy? What role did the reception of Russell’s scientific philosophy play outside the Anglophone world, e.g. in China, France, Germany, the Soviet-Union, Turkey, or India? And how was Russell’s scientific philosophy understood by other philosophical movements, including Neo-Thomism, monism, and Neo-Kantianism? The aim of this workshop is to address the reception of Russell’s scientific philosophy to learn more about the multifarious early history of analytic philosophy.
