The paper aims at the identification of the most important events that are vital for the development of the analytical philosophy. The role of modern logic is well-known in this connection, but it is argued that there is another occurrence relevant in this respect, i. e. the rise of modern physics. Unlike the philosophical physics, its predecessor, the modern physics utilizes mathematical apparatus, and thus both of them can achieve better results and be a measure of scientific rationality. The role of modern logic for philosophy is taken as analogous to the role of mathematics for physics.
