The Paradox of Analysis

The Paradox of Analysis

(p.69) 3 The Paradox of Analysis
Quality and Concept

George Bealer

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the paradox of analysis, a particularly recalcitrant problem in the logic for intentional matters and one that has deep implications for philosophical method, philosophical psychology, and cognitive psychology. The problem may be put as follows: how, if correct, can a definition (or analysis) be informative? After a critical examination of Alonzo Church's resolution of the paradox, the chapter shows how to extend the new approach to intensional logic to include a more acceptable resolution.

Keywords:   paradox of analysis, Alonzo Church, intensional logic, intentional matters
