Avrum Stroll investigates the "family resemblances" between that impressive breed of thinkers known as analytic philosophers. In so doing, he grapples with the point and purpose of doing philosophy: What is philosophy? What are its tasks? What kind of information, illumination, and understanding is it supposed to provide if it is not one of the natural sciences?

Journal of the History of Philosophy

No other book has canvassed the last century as Stroll has, and with such insight. Written with wit and verve, Stroll's book is informative and eloquent.
