This Introduction takes a general perspective on the recent past and present of the philosophy of concepts. Its aim is to individuate which questions about concepts were opened up in the recent past, and to show how the present contributions relate to them. I outline a summary of the main developments of the philosophy of concepts in the last couple of decades, and then turn to the present. The most prominent feature appears to be that philosophers now tend to accept a division between a cognitive or psychological notion of concept, and a non-cognitive or Fregean one.

Abstract

This Introduction takes a general perspective on the recent past and present of the philosophy of concepts. Its aim is to individuate which questions about concepts were opened up in the recent past, and to show how the present contributions relate to them. I outline a summary of the main developments of the philosophy of concepts in the last couple of decades, and then turn to the present. The most prominent feature appears to be that philosophers now tend to accept a division between a cognitive or psychological notion of concept, and a non-cognitive or Fregean one.
