Undated photograph Introduction Gilbert Ryle - was a 20th Century British philosopher, mainly associated with the Ordinary Language Philosophy movement. He had an enormous influence on the development of 20th Century Analytic Philosophy , particularly in the areas of Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Language. He was especially well-known for his definitive critique of the Dualism of Descartes for which he coined the phrase "the ghost in the machine" and other traditional mind-body theories.

His form of Philosophical Behaviourism the belief that all mental phenomena can be explained by reference to publicly observable behavior became a standard view for several decades.

Life Ryle was born on 19 August in Brighton, England, one of ten children in a prosperous family. His father was a doctor but also a generalist who had interests in philosophy and astronomy, and passed on to his children an impressive library, and the young Ryle grew up in an environment of learning.

He graduated with first class honors in and was appointed to a lectureship in Philosophy at Christ Church, Oxford. He became a tutor a year later, and remained at Christ Church until World War II and remained at Oxford for his entire academic career until his retirement in He was generally regarded as easy-going and sociable and an entertaining conversationalist, but a fierce and formidable debater, unforgiving of pomposity and pretentiousness.

He was president of the Aristotelian Society from to , and editor of the philosophical journal "Mind" for nearly twenty-five years from to He published his principal work, "The Concept of Mind", in A confirmed bachelor, he lived after his retirement in with his twin sister, Mary, in the village of Islip, Oxfordshire. Gardening and walking gave him immense pleasure, as did his pipe without which he was rarely seen.

Work Back to Top In his writing, Ryle had a literary and instantly recognizable style. Ryle believed that the classical theories whether Cartesian, Idealist or Materialist made a basic "category-mistake" by attempting to analyze the relation between "mind" and "body" as if they were terms of the same logical category. He argued that philosophers do not need a "hidden" principle to explain the supra-mechanical capacities of humans, because the workings of the mind are not distinct from the actions of the body, but are one and the same.

Looked at another way, he characterized the mind as a set of capacities and abilities belonging to the body. He concluded that adequate descriptions of human behavior need never refer to anything but the operations of human bodies, which can be seen as a form of Philosophical Behaviourism also known as Analytical or Logical Behaviourism which became a standard view among Ordinary Language philosophers for several decades although more recently it has morphed into a kind of Functionalism.

Ryle also formulated a cartography analogy for his conception of philosophy. He suggested that competent speakers of a language are to a philosopher what simple villagers are to a mapmaker.

The villager knows his way around his village well enough for personal and practical purposes, but may not be able to use a map to pinpoint or describe routes to an outsider.

In the same way, philosophers should be able to explain and make apparent the meaning of sentences by "mapping" the words and phrases of a particular statement, generating what Ryle called "implication threads", such that each word or phrase of a statement contributes to the statement in such a way that, if the words or phrases were changed, the statement would have a different implication.

Philosophy, then, should search for the meaning of these implication threads in the statements in which they are used.

What qualifies an undertaking as one of pondering or, not very differently, as one of discussing, is not any catalogue of simple qualities and simple relations, whether gilbdrt or refined, but some nexus of statable because statement-shaped conditions. From the fact that these utterances are protected from epistemic assessment or criticism it does not follow that we have a special kind of knowledge about them; any more, says Ryle, than it follows from the fact that someone is not a quack doctor that he is a good doctor: Thinking can be saying things to oneself under a thin description.
