Philosophy of Logical Atomism

In the first half of the twentieth century, a few logicians and mathematicians tried to see the world as the totality of facts. They also tried to map the elements of the world onto the elements of language. Thus they created a language that was unambiguous and — according to them — fit for scientific discourses. Their view provided the philosophical world with a new philosophical methodology also. This view, which was known as ‘logical atomism’, influenced the philosophers, logicians and scientists of that time significantly. This course would introduce the philosophy of logical atomism to the students.
