Alfred Ayer - Language, Truth and Logic
Ayer — was only 24 when he wrote the book that made his philosophical name, Language, Truth, and Logic hereafter LTL , published in In it he put forward what were understood to be the major theses of logical positivism, and so established himself as the leading English representative of the movement, Viennese in origin. In endorsing these views Ayer saw himself as continuing in the line of British empiricism established by John Locke and David Hume, an empiricism whose most recent representative was Bertrand Russell.
Language, Truth and Logic is a book about meaning by the philosopher Alfred Jules Ayer , in which the author defines, explains, and argues for the verification principle of logical positivism , sometimes referred to as the criterion of significance or criterion of meaning. Ayer explains how the principle of verifiability may be applied to the problems of philosophy. Language, Truth and Logic brought some of the ideas of the Vienna Circle and the logical empiricists to the attention of the English-speaking world.
