The death of analytic philosophy and the birth of consciousness
Consciousness, which is experience by the first person singular,
is by definition outside of the scope of analytic philosophy, which
is limited to be able to only deal in descriptions of experience.

Definition  of  ANALYTIC  PHILOSOPHY
" a philosophical movement that seeks the solution of philosophical problems in the analysis of propositions or sentences ?alled also philosophical analysis
compare  ordinary-language  philosophy. "

Analytic (British) philosophy (Bertrand Russell, Anthony Flew. etc.)
limits  philosophy to  word and logic  puzzles and thus legitimizes
atheism and materialism. This has given rise to a semi-religious
cult or atheism and materialism that cannot  tell  us  about
experiential human issues such as consciousness, religion, and true ai.
Or meaningful issues such as ethics or aesthetics.

However,  continental  philosophy  and Indian philosophy can.
(Leibniz,  Kant, Indian philosophers).

Analytical philosophy can do that too. For contingent reasons, analytical philosophers rarely do that, nor do logicians do that. But they can, and should, and fortunately, computer science makes this utterly clear, by showing that machines confronted with themselves cannot avoid the (meta)description of personal first person features which provably admit no description at all.
