Item Description...
This accessible and up-to-date survey introduces the central debates of English-language philosophy since 1945. A brief description of philosophical debates during the first half of the 20th century is followed by extended discussions of some of the writings of Wittgenstein, Ryle, Austin, Quine, and Sellars. The book then describes several ensuing philosophical debates that have shaped philosophical discussions from the 1960s until the present day. There are chapters on: the Davidson/Dummett debate concerning language; the Kripke/Lewis debate concerning possible worlds; the Popper/Kuhn debate concerning the justification in epistemology; the debates concerning materialism, functionalism, and dual-aspect theories of mind; and recent work in moral psychology, metaethics, and normative ethics. The final chapter is a critical discussion of Rorty's metaphilosophical scepticism. In addition, there is extensive attention to the writings of Strawson, Putnam, Evans, McDowell, Williams, Nagel, and many other contemporary philosophers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very good introduction  Sep 30, 2003
Thomas Baldwin's introduction to contemporary philosophy in English is simply outstanding. Baldwin writes very clearly, a great virtue when writing about philosophy and ought not to be unappreciated. Philosophy itself is hard enough and there's no need to add to the confusion by writing badly about it. But in my oppinion Baldwin does a superb job of introducing the main themes and currents of Anglo-American philosophy in the latter half of the 20th century, as well as setting the scene in the first chapter, in a way that everyone can understand and is completely free of all philosophical jargon.

If you want to acquaint yourself with 20th century philosophy, I recommend you start by reading this book. It will get you far and help you put things into perspective. There are also helpful suggestions for further reading in the book. But I also recommend this book to those who are already familiar with 20th century philosophy. You might gain a better perspective of what you're already familiar with, and, again, this book is just fun to read.
