This paper deals with some problems of matching contemporary analytic theology to medieval scholasticism. It is demonstrated that those “weak points” of Christian creed which the former are trying to vindicate cannot be understood properly within the “states of affairs ontology”, but only in terms of the “ontology of things”.
The paper is devoted to the problem of rehabilitation of metaphysics in the contemporary analytic philosophy. It traces the connection of analytic metaphysics with Aristotelian and Kantian approaches to this subject; it also marks its main features and demonstrates a new understanding of realism in analytic philosophy.
The chapter contains the intellectual biography of Michael Dummett, the leading British analytic philosopher of the late XXth century. His contribution to philosophy of language, metaphysics, logic and history of analytic philosophy is described.
