really liked it
bookshelves: philosophy
Recommended for: philosophers and those philosophicall inclined
Read in June, 2006

Soames's book sets the standard for a broad-ranging work detailing the history of analytic philosophy . It deals nicely with the major movements and is best suited (as Soames himself mentions) as a guide to the primary texts discussed (esp. important since Soames's book is not MERELY expository - it engages with the material in a (possibly) controversial way (or so some reviews will lead you to believe).
