The Age of Analysis Reassessed
Perhaps I should first of all explain that the term “Age of Analysis” is a fairly cheap label which is used to simplify or to underline one aspect, because it is clear that there has been philosophical analysis ever since the Greeks started to philosphize. Likewise, the 17th century could be called the Age of Reason, when of course reason has existed and will exist regardless of any age; and the 5th to the 15th centuries have been called the Age of Belief, while there has been and there will be belief as long as people hope for help from a higher being or seek the blessing of a church.
