This book is a gem. I've never run across any of Urmson's books on Aristotle, so assume that they're worthless. But this is a purely historical treatment of a philosophical movement (the origins and development of Analytical philosophy - really starting with the Tractatus - that itself is fundamentally ahistorical and is rarely treated historically. I *highly* recommend it.

Apparently out-of-print -- brilliant -- a short and nuanced history of the analytical movement, primarily Russell and the early Wittgenstein. Can't recommend highly enough.

The ISBN, btw, is 0-19-500277-6
