chapter  VIII
'WE' IN MODERN PHILOSOPHY
Pages 27

The examples which I have chosen all come from contexts in linguistic philosophy. The philosophers who employ them are all engaged in the philosophical analysis of language (whether or not they would say that philosophy consists entirely in such analysis). A similar use of 'we' sentences can occur in other contexts, and I will quote some examples from non-linguistic philosophers later; but I wish at present to examine this use as it occurs in linguistic philosophy.
