The article examines the relation between analytic philosophy and logics. While 'logic' is easily definable as: theory of formally valid inferences, for 'analytic philosophy' only several ideal characteristics can be provided, in particular: clearness, argumentativity, use of a wide spectrum of good epistemic instruments (logic, probability theory, decision theory, linguistic analysis...), use of empirical information, practical utility. Hard versus soft analytical philosophy can be distinguished in how far it shows these characteristics. After such clarifications, finally, the relation between analytical philosophy and logics is analysed: analytical philosophy has to respect logics but logic is only one of its many subjects etc.

Abstract

The article examines the relation between analytic philosophy and logics. While 'logic' is easily definable as: theory of formally valid inferences, for 'analytic philosophy' only several ideal characteristics can be provided, in particular: clearness, argumentativity, use of a wide spectrum of good epistemic instruments (logic, probability theory, decision theory, linguistic analysis...), use of empirical information, practical utility. Hard versus soft analytical philosophy can be distinguished in how far it shows these characteristics. After such clarifications, finally, the relation between analytical philosophy and logics is analysed: analytical philosophy has to respect logics but logic is only one of its many subjects etc.
