Analytic philosophy is currently one of the leading philosophical traditions in the world. Its contributions to the flourishing of philosophical studies and development of the discipline of philosophy as a whole are comprehensive and profound. Nonetheless, the lack of a proper understanding of its true nature is still noticeable. For instance, it is sometimes understood as merely referring to a purely intellectual activity where concepts, arguments, and meanings of words are technically and meticulously analyzed without any clear direction. As a result, one fails to see its real beauty and value and to take advantage of its insights and skills. This essay aims to address this lack in two steps. First, it will identify and examine the influences of analytic philosophy inside and outside of the discipline of philosophy in order to show its value. Second, it will trace the history of analytic philosophy in order to clarify its goals and motivations. © 2019 Napoleon M. Mabaquiao, Jr.
