Hales (Bloomsbury U.) presents an anthology of 30 outstanding, seminal readings that will give readers a deeper understanding of the rich contributions early analytic philosophers have made to contemporary philosophical debate. Key topics include philosophy of language, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of the mind, and ethics. To provide theoretical perspective, each topical area is prefaced by an introductory essay by a leading philosopher, thereby offering an overview and placing the issues discussed into historical context.
