Summary Mr. Ayer sets up specific tests by which you can easily evaluate statements of ideas. You will also learn how to distinguish ideas that cannot be verified by experience--those expressing religious, moral, or aesthetic experience, those expounding theological or metaphysical doctrine, and those dealing with a priori truth. The basic thesis of this work is that philosophy should not squander its energies upon the unknowable, but should perform its proper function in criticism and analysis.
Contents The elimination of metaphysics -- The function of philosophy -- The nature of philosophical analysis -- The a priori -- Truth and probability -- Critique of ethics and theology -- The self and the common world -- Solutions of outstanding philosophical disputes.
