Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent resource for courses in analytic philosophyas well as for readers who want an overview of twentieth-centuryAnglo-American philosophy. Few books introduce readers to theentire field, and none do so as thoroughly and effectively as thisone."
Daniel Bonevac, University of Texas at Austin

As the twentieth century has come to an end, a book that doesthe service of summarizing the views of major philosophers in theanalytic tradition is greatly needed. This book gives acomprehensive coverage of all major analytic philosophers andreflects a joint effort by distinguished philosophers in the field.It will thus stand out as the standard text on analyticphilosophy.
JeeLoo Liu, State University of New York at Geneseo

"This attractive volume is a superb resource for anyoneinterested in analytic philosophy and is a worthy addition to theexcellent "Blackwell Companions to Philosophy" series."
