English Philosopher

b. 1919

Strawson studied at Oxford, where he became a fellow of University College in 1948, and professor of metaphysical philosophy from 1968. His early work dealt particularly with the links between logic and language, in the general tradition of "ordinary language" philosophy, as in his Introduction to Logical Theory (1952). He went on to study the metaphysical structure of human thought about the world in The Bounds of Sense (1966). Some other works include Logico-Linguistic Papers (1971) and Scepticism and Naturalism (1985).
