Some parallels between analysis and phenomenology
If one traces the history of the analytic philosophies in fairly broad expressionistic strokes rather than in pointillistic dots it appears that in certain ways that family of philosophies has more closely approached phenomenological insights than is generally noticed. And if one traces the history of phenomenological philosophy in the same size strokes it appears that language has become more and more a problem for it. This historical convergence can be seen in relation to certain views of the relation of language and experience.1 In this paper I intend to first indicate what I take to be the movement of convergence and, secondly, show a certain parallelism between W. V. O. Quine and Paul Ricœur in terms of their respective views of language and experience.
