Moore and Quine
This chapter discusses the opinions of philosophers George Edward Moore and Willard Van Orman Quine on the issue of conceptual analysis. Moore considers most philosophical tasks and problems as belonging to the realm of metaphysics, or more appropriately ontology, while questions the nature and foundations of knowledge as belonging to a department of philosophy he calls logic. Quine refers to general logical notions of contemporary logic and its notation as canonical notations. By this, he means the notation embodies or reveals a clear and absolutely general framework that is adequate for all propositional thinking, whatever the subject matter.
