ABSTRACT. This paper describes the development of analytic philosophy at the University of Minnesota from the time Herbert Feigl arrived there in 1940 to the late fifties when the author was there as a graduate student. The author relates how, after Feigl arrived, Wilfred Sellars soon joined the department and how the two men contributed to making the university an important center for teaching, research, and publication in analytic philosophy. He also describes how, with the assistance of gifted younger colleagues, they developed the journal, Philosophical Studies, how Feigl created and managed the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science, and what distinctive individual contributions the two men made to analytic philosophy.
