Ryle, Gilbert (1900–1976)




English philosopher, a major figure in Oxford in the tradition of "ordinary language" philosophy, which views philosophical problems as conceptual confusions resulting from an unwary use of language. In his bet known work, The Concept of Mind (1949), he sought to expose the legacy of such confusions bequeathed by the dualism of Descartes.
