My most recent book is a study of the life and work of the philosopher Susan Stebbing, published in March 2013 as Susan Stebbing and the Language of Common Sense, in the Palgrave History of Analytic Philosophy series. Stebbing is a very interesting and under-researched figure in the British analytic tradition of the early to mid twentieth century. She was a leading exponent of contemporary developments in logical theory, and yet her works were illustrated with examples taken from naturally-occurring texts and with appeals to how her readership would ordinarily use and understand words. Her work therefore calls into question any notion of a clear-cut distinction or binary division between the so-called ‘ideal language’ and ‘ordinary language’ traditions in analytic philosophy. Further, in her later work, Stebbing focussed her attention on the analysis of ideologically loaded texts such as advertisements, newspaper editorials and political speeches, with a particular emphasis on revealing the assumptions and commitments underlying these. This type of analytic work is nowadays most readily associated with fairly recent developments in linguistics, such as critical discourse analysis.
