The notion of analyticity has had a prominent role in the work of many philosophers, especially in the first half of the twentieth century. Following W. V. Quine’s seminal paper “Two Dogmas of Empiricism” (1951) many philosophers have come to regard the notion with much suspicion. In recent years, however, there has been renewed interest in analyticity, but can we make sense of it? What is its philosophical significance? Can it be used to explain the possibility of a priori knowledge? The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for discussion and reflection on these and related questions.
