From the end of World War II until the 1970s, professional philosophy was dominated by a form of speculation called ‘analytic philosophy’. This school of thought brought together the philosophical analysis dominant in England and certain aspects of the pragmatism institutionalized at Harvard. Harvard and Oxford University became the dominant, interacting centres of English‐speaking philosophy, and a unique form of analytic philosophy, pragmatic analysis, evolved at Harvard, focusing on the work of Nelson Goodman and Willard Quine.
