This anthology of accessible readings in 20th-century philosophical classics includes recent European and American philosophers and texts that are presently seen as classics or as emerging classics. It features the best available translations of texts-complete works or complete sections of works-which are both central to each philosopher's thought and specific doctrine. Using drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline to help in historical perspective, this anthology covers 20th century philosophic classics that deal with such themes as logic, idealism, metaphysics, existentialism, and empiricism; and includes works by Husserl, Dewey, Du Bois, Russell, Moore, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Ayer, Gadamer, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Austin, Davidson, Foucault, Derrida, Rorty, Rawls, and MacIntyre. For anyone interested in owning a readable collection of 20th-century classic philosophical works.

From the Back Cover:

Forrest Baird's revisions of Philosophic Classics, Prentice Hall's long-standing philosophy series, continue the tradition begun in 1961, to provide generations of students with anthologies of high quality in the history of Western philosophy. Using the complete works or, where appropriate, complete sections of works, this series allows philosophers to speak directly to students.

This series includes texts central to the thinker's own philosophy, using the best available translations. Introductions to each reading are divided into three sections:

  • Biographical Provides a glimpse into the life of the philosopher;
  • Philosophical Presents a résumé of the philosopher's thought; and
  • Bibliographical Offers suggestions for further reading.

In addition, drawings, photographs, and time lines help put the readings into context. In short, every effort has been made to help the reader understand primary source materials.
