A dense paperback of basic writings of twentieth century philosophers. From Moore through Wittgenstein, these men no longer agreed what the basic stuff of philosophic reflection was.

Part of my rating of this book as only three stars is because of my lack of love for 20th century philosophy. This is a collection of some of the more important writers in the school of analysis and a few others. It is perhaps too close in time to the subject matter, and it reflects a philosophical discipline that has become fully academic.

It's OK, but outdated,
