By G. A. J. Rogers Tom Sorell

Philosophy written in English is overwhelmingly analytic philosophy, and the concepts and predilections of analytic philosophy aren't simply unhistorical yet anti-historical, and antagonistic to textual observation.

All of those features of the topic take a seat uneasily with using historic texts for philosophical illumination. during this booklet, ten exceptional philosophers discover the tensions among, and the chances of reconciling, analytic philosophy and background of philosophy. participants: M. R. Ayers, John Cottingham, Daniel Garber, Gary Hatfield, Anthony Kenny, Steven Nadler, G. A. J. Rogers, Tom Sorell, Catherine Wilson, Yves Charles Zarka
