Description
Avrum 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.

Major themes in Twentieth-Century Analytic Philosophy include:
-- the innovation of mathematical logic by Gottlob Frege at the close of the nineteenth century and its independent development by Bertrand Russell;
-- the story of Ludwig Wittgenstein, G. E. Moore, and the rise of logical positivism; and
-- the impact of advancements in science on the world of philosophy.

Along the way, Stroll also covers the theories of Rudolf Carnap, W.V.O. Quine, Gilbert Ryle, J. L. Austin, Hilary Putnam, Ruth Marcus, and Patricia and Paul Churchland.

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 domain of personalities and their competing methods and arguments.
