At a time when naturalism is dominant in philosophy, ordinary language philosophy is still often seen as the relic of a by-gone age. Having failed to catch up with cognitive science, its philosophy of mind would seem to be irrelevant. The aim of this workshop is to show, by reading the work of Gilbert Ryle and Ludwig Wittgenstein closely, that this is not so. Ordinary language philosophy has much to contribute to contemporary philosophy of mind.
