This anthology of accessible readings in 20th-century philosophical classics includes recent European and American philosophers and texts that are presently seen as classics or as emerging classics. It features the best available translations of texts-complete works or complete sections of works-which are both central to each philosopher's thought and specific doctrine.

Using drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline to help in historical perspective, this anthology covers 20th century philosophic classics that deal with such themes as logic, idealism, metaphysics, existentialism, and empiricism; and includes works by Husserl, Dewey, Du Bois, Russell, Moore, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Ayer, Gadamer, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Austin, Davidson, Foucault, Derrida, Rorty, Rawls, and MacIntyre.

For anyone interested in owning a readable collection of 20th-century classic philosophical works.
