Early Analytic Group

The Stirling Early Analytic Group

Philosophy at Stirling has a significant group of staff with research interests in the history of analytic philosophy, including Philip Ebert, Colin Johnston, Peter Milne, Peter Sullivan, and Crispin Wright.

Together they form the core of the Stirling Early Analytic Group, currently coordinated by Colin Johnston and Peter Sullivan. Since 2013 the group has held a series of informal workshops bringing together philosophers and research students, from elsewhere in Scotland and beyond, to discuss issues of shared interest. From 2013-15 the group’s meetings interleaved with a series of workshops, Frege@Stirling, organized by Walter Pedriali as part of his Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship project conducted at Stirling.
