The aim of the paper is to attack some prejudices against contemporary analytical philosophy spread among Slovak philosophers. The author tries to show that 1. the analytical philosophy is philosophy and not logic or logical analysis of language, that 2. this philosophy is not purely analytical and 3. it is not a system of assertions accepted by all analytical philosophers but rather a philosophical movement unified by the conviction that philosophical problems cannot be put and solved properly without knowledge of language and its logic. In authorś opinion the analytical way of doing philosophy is deeply rooted in the history of philosophy. Contemporary analytical philosophy conspicuously resembles the ancient Greek philosophy in the period of its bloom.
