9780195132830: Classics of Philosophy: Volume III: The Twentieth Century

The most recent volume in Louis Pojman's highly successful Classics of Philosophy collection (OUP, 1998), Classics of Philosophy: Volume III, The Twentieth Century assembles definitive essays in twentieth-century Western philosophy. This work is considerably more comprehensive than the corresponding section of the single-volume edition of Classics of Philosophy. Its selections cover the whole spectrum of the field, representing the major movements of the century including British Realism, American Pragmatism, Logical Positivism, Existentialism, Phenomenology, Deconstructionism, and Ordinary Language Philosophy. Pojman includes fifty-four diverse and engaging selections by thirty-nine leading philosophers, featuring the work of Ayer, Carnap, Davidson, Dennett, Derrida, Foucault, Gettier, Goldman, Habermas, Harrison, Heidegger, Husserl, Kripke, McTaggart, Moore, Nagel, Nozick, Putnam, Quine, Rawls, Rorty, Russell, Ryle, Sartre, Searle, Strawson, and Wittgenstein. Seminal works in the philosophy of mind, free will/determinism, the debate over religious truth, and political and moral philosophy are included. Ideal for courses in twentieth-century and contemporary philosophy, the volume also includes an enlightening introduction, biographical sketches for each author, and abstracts and bibliographies for each selection.

Review:

"There's nothing better than original texts, especially when explicated by a great scholar--Pojman."--Joan Anderson, Orange Coast College, CA

"As a one-volume reader, this book provides an entire philosophical library for the student. Excellent breadth and depth of coverage."--Steve Nichols, Lancaster Bible College

"This is an excellent work; it can be suitable for a diversity of courses and still allow for the creativity of the professor."--George Kovacs, Florida International University

"Probably the best anthology on Western philosophy. Judicious selections, great coverage, highly accessible."--Ramesh Patel, Antioch College

"An ideal text for undergraduate courses in History of Western Philosophy."--Prakash Chenjeri, Southern Oregon University

"More inclusive and better chosen than alternative texts. This is a very valuable new work."--Duncan Richter, Virginia Military Institute
