But do read the rest of the story for what it reveals about Greener’s life: born in Philadelphia, son of a slave, enrolled in Harvard in 1865 as an experiment courtesy of white sponsors, appointed philosophy professor in 1873 at the University of South Carolina, survived assassination attempt, had six children, became Howard University Law School dean, friend and rival of Booker T.

In contrast, according to an early view of Russell (one in which ordinary proper names function logically as genuine names rather than as concealed descriptions), the sentence “Venus is Venus” says only that Venus is identical to itself.

There is a firm opposition between analytic philosophy and some other currents of continental philosophy, i.e., existentialism, hermeneutics, the philosophy of dialogue, and postmodernism (together with deconstructionism). A survey of sequential editions of the PGR since the late 1990s shows that Leiter’s views have undergone an evolution with a very definite trajectory away from treating AP as a philosophical school. (Leiter 2004b: 11) In light of this it is safe to say that Leiter no longer accepts – if indeed he ever did – the view that good philosophy can be reduced to AP. precision and rigor.
