“A label frequently used for a kind of analytical philosophy with a distinctively linguistic orientation, which from the mid-twentieth century set the tone for much academic philosophy internationally.  Among its leading exponents were Gilbert Ryle, P. F. Strawson, J. L. Austin and H. P. Grice.

“It is entirely different from and has only the name in common with the so-called Oxford Movement in the nineteenth century, and with the Oxford Group of the 1930s, led by Frank Buchman and later renamed Moral Re-Armament.”

The Penguin Dictionary of Philosophy, 446.
