Internationalism in early analytic philosophy

Basak Aray 
The emergence of analytic philosophy towards the early 20th century shows interesting parallelisms with the concomitant international auxiliary language movement. Both these projects are characterized by their universalist assumptions and their constructive approach to language. Even though international auxiliary language is more clearly political in its objective of unifying people through national borders, many important figures of the early analytic philosophy also supported internationalism. Beyond the fact that some of these (like Peano, Couturat and Carnap) also took part in the movement for an international auxiliary language, we argue that the Enlightenment- inspired rationalism of the early analytic philosophy connects it to political and linguistic internationalism on a deeper level.
