Summary/Abstract: The paper passes in review the development of philosophy in the divided from the communist experiment Europe up to 1989. As a result of this division, two prima facie contrary phyilosophical movements emerged in Europe: dialectical materialism (I consider it mainly as it was developed after 1956) and analytic philosophy (I consider it, above all, in its British variant). (The paper does not set as its objective the study of the two most prominent figures of the two philosophies, Wittgenstein and Ilyenkov; their names are used simply as emblems). My claim is that despite all the differences between them, these two schools developed into the same direction which I describe in terms of a joint analytic-dialectical method. It teaches how to judge reghtly, evading harmful prejudices, or simply traps reasoning.
