The Electronic Journal of Analytic Philosophy (EJAP) is a peer reviewed electronic journal (ISSN: 1071-5800) for the publication of articles and reviews relevant to analytic philosophy, both as a historical movement and a current research program. The journal began publication in August 1993 and continued annually until 1998. One more issue (the most recent) was published in 2002. The content of all issues are freely and openly available through the archives. Many of the issues are themed, for example: the philosophy of Gilbert Ryle (1900-1976); the philosophy of Gareth Evans (1946-1980); methods of ontology; and value in nature. The emphasis is on analytic philosophy in both form and content. Language, reference, mind, and formal ontology all receive particular attention. There is, however, the occasional foray into other territory, such as existential phenomenology. Despite the present hiatus in its publication, EJAP retains its status of having set an exceptionally high standard for an online journal. Many of the authors are established philosophers in their field, and the archived articles would be of interest to advanced undergraduates and researchers in analytic philosophy.

This web page contains an online version of a famous essay by W.V.O. Quine criticising some of the assumptions underlying empiricism. Willard Van Orman Quine (1908-2000) was one of the foremost American mathematicians and philosophers of the twentieth century. The 'Two Dogmas of Empiricism' that he objects to here are the belief in a fundamental distinction between analytic and synthetic truths, and the reductionism that assumes 'that each meaningful statement is equivalent to some logical construct upon terms which refer to immediate experience'. This e-text provides both the original 1951 edition of the essay and the revised 1961 edition. Where the texts vary, they are placed side-by-side for easy comparison. The footnotes are linked by hypertext, a good way to ensure the clean readability of the body of the text.
