dc.abstract.en While in Norway or Finland the analytical tradition is usually regarded as having its roots in Vienna,1 in Sweden it is generally associated with the choice of Axel Hägerström (1868-1939) for a professor of practical philosophy at the University of Uppsala. It was Hägerström who broke with Boström's idealism, which dominated Swedish phi-losophy since the mid-19th century, replacing it with a new school called Uppsalafilosofin, and adopting conceptual analysis as the central method of modern philosophy. Teaching from 1893 until his retirement in 1933, Hägerström attacked the philosophical idealism of the followers of Christopher Jacob Boström (1797-1866), going down in history as the founder of (quasi-)positivist school of philosophy in Uppsala - the Swedish equivalent of Anglo-American analytical philosophy and logical positivism of the Vienna Circle. Under the influence of neo-Kantianism, he called for the final rejection of metaphysics, assuming the motto: "Praeterea censeo metaphysicam esse delendam" (eng. "I also think that metaphysics should be destroyed.") The aim of this paper is to present the philosophical figure of Axel Hägerström and the Uppsala School created by him. Then, analyzing the assumptions and fundamental postulates, we will discuss their impact on the development and shape of analytical thought in modern Sweden. pl
