Twentieth-Century Analytic Philosophy
Publisher: Columbia University PressFormat: Paperback
Eminent philosopher Avrum Stroll presents an authoritative and accessible history of analytic philosophy in the past century, from Russell and Wittgenstein to Searle and Kripke. Stroll offers precisely the sort of crisp narrative account readers require to navigate the difficulties of modern analytic philosophy. Covering the evolution of logic, ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics, Stroll's work weaves together the strains of the past century's philosophical insights to produce a lively and sophisticated work that will captivate general readers and scholars alike. Stroll's approach to his subject treats the critical movements in analytic philosophy in terms of the philosophers who defined them. In his capable hands, the notoriously complex realm of analytic philosophy emerges less as an abstract enterprise than as a domair of personalities and their competing methods and arguments.
