Note: this general is still a work in progress, help from other anons educated in contemporary analytical philosophy would be welcome. It would be good to discuss how to structure the general in a way that still allows for quality discourse whilst being engaging and welcoming to newcomers.

>What is Analytic philosophy?
Analytical Philosophy is a school of philosophy Started by Bertrand Russell and others in the twentieth Century, it has a strong focus on rigour and clarity in argument, and borrows from scientific methods to think about philosophical problems. Analytic philosophy papers and books usually have a very narrow scope for the focus of their philosophical project.
Since the 20th century, analytic philosophy has become the dominant approach in the Anglosphere.

>How is it distinct from other schools of philosophy?
Philosophy maybe broken into three main avenues of study: History of philosophy, Continental Philosophy and Analytical Philosophy. Prior to the twentieth century, philosophy was taught in chronological order, typically as part of a liberal education, this is why those asking how to start in philosophy are told to "start with the Greeks". After the twentieth century, a divide formed between analytical and Continental philosophy, which typically has a broader scope to its philosophical project and emphasised an artistic sense in writing.

>How to start learning about analytic philosophy
