What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Analytic Philosophy is the best anthology of its kind. Expertly edited, and packed with classic writings from Frege to Wittgenstein, as well as a comprehensive selection from contemporary philosophers, it will be an indispensible resource for all students of the subject. If analytic philosophy has a canon, this is it."
Alex Byrne, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Praise for the first edition:

"Analytic Philosophy: An Anthology is very well organized and brilliantly selected. It features many of the most impressive products of analytic philosophy. Given that it contains so many excerpts which are considered compulsory reading in philosophy programs, I would enthusiastically recommend it to students of philosophy and to anyone wishing to find out about the analytical approach."
Paul Snowdon, University of London

"This collection reprints a large number of classic papers in analytic philosophy. The papers are very intelligently chosen – they interconnect and build on each other, and together give the reader a very good sense of what the enterprise of 'analytic philosophy' is all about."
Jim Woodward, California Institute of Technology
