Rudolf Carnap (1891–1970) and W. V. Quine (1908–2000) are towering figures of twentieth century philosophy, now often remembered most for their famed debate over the analytic/synthetic distinction.  Increasingly though, some scholars have been drawing more attention towards their shared philosophical influences and assumptions, for example, that both cite Russell as a central influence on their early work and that both espouse a version of scientific philosophy.  This conference will emphasize this approach to interpreting them.  It aims at a better understanding of their philosophical relationship to each other as well as to the analytic tradition as a whole.

If you would like to attend, please contact Sean Morris at MSU Denver.
