Product Description

Review

"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.

Review

" 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Anyone who Wants to Begin To Study Anal. Phil. 26 Mar 2002
By Pedro Rosario - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an extraordinary anthology, not only in the sense that it includes the basic writings on philosophy of language (like Frege's "On Sense and Reference" and "The Thought", and the important reading of Bertrand Russell "On Denoting") but also contains readings on metaphysics which include portions of Wittgenstein's Tractatus, and Quine's "On What There Is". Contains also the readings of Quine's "Two Dogmas of Empiricism" and the reply of other philosophers to that reading, specially "In Defense of Dogma" by H. P. Grice and P. E. Strawson. Contains readings on Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind, and Ethics (which includes portions of G. E. Moore's Principia Ethica). It is the ideal anthology for anyone who wants to begin to study analytic philosophy.
I enthusiastically recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent anthology of analytic thought. 15 Oct 2010
By Matthew H. Traylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As another reviewer noted, this anthology contains some of the most important articles in the history of analytic philosophy, notably Quine's "On What There Is" (important for my own studies of the philosophy of mathematics is when he introduces his notion of ontological commitment, among other things), and his "Two Dogmas of Empiricism". For those two articles it is worth the price alone, but also for the reading of Frege and for Searle's ""Can Computers Think?", which contains a version of his now famous Chinese Room argument. All of the articles contained within are relevant and most were groundbreaking; all are thought-provoking and necessary reading for the student of analytical philosophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Anthology 10 Feb 2014
By nate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This anthology has many of the most important articles in analytic philosophy. I do wish, however, that it included articles on (1) Idealism, (2) Moore's critique of idealism and defense of common sens/the existence of an external world, (3) additional seminal articles in ethics ("Good and Evil", "How to Derive an 'Ought' from an 'Is', etc.).

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought this for a class 12 Jan 2013
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for a class and referenced it once or twice to read the essays contained within. Interesting reading, but considering it is little more than a compendium of essays I think it could be cheaper.
