An Introduction

Welcome to
the "Conceptanalysis, Language and Logic"-site!

The date and time are:

"Language is a labyrinth of paths. You approach from one side and know your way about; you approach the same place from another side and no longer know your way about."

However, before we deal with the contemporary part of the Conceptanalysis, it is necessary to return for a while to the antique (e.g. Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Heraclitus, Democritus, Epicurus etc.), medieval and later times in order to gain an understanding of the conclusions which philosophers and logicians of our days have made: A review to the history of Conceptanalysis.
