A Companion to Analytic Philosophy is a comprehensive guide to over forty of the significant analytic philosophers from the last hundred years. The entries in this Companion are contributed by contemporary philosophers, including some of the most distinguished now living, such as Michael Dummett, Frank Jackson, P. M. S. Hacker, Israel Scheffler, John Searle, Ernest Sosa, and Robert Stalnaker. They discuss the arguments of influential figures in the history of analytic philosophy, among them Frege, Russell, Moore, Wittgenstein, and Quine. The articles on each philosopher provide clear and extensive analysis of profound and widely encountered concepts such as meaning, truth, knowledge, goodness, and the mind. This volume is a vital resource for anyone interested in analytic philosophy.

"This is an excellent resource for courses in analytic philosophy as well as for readers who want an overview of twentieth-century Anglo-American philosophy. Few books introduce readers to the entire field, and none do so as thoroughly and effectively as this one." Daniel Bonevac, University of Texas at Austin As the twentieth century has come to an end, a book that does the service of summarizing the views of major philosophers in the analytic tradition is greatly needed. This book gives a comprehensive coverage of all major analytic philosophers and reflects a joint effort by distinguished philosophers in the field. It will thus stand out as the standard text on analytic philosophy. JeeLoo Liu, State University of New York at Geneseo "This attractive volume is a superb resource for anyone interested in analytic philosophy and is a worthy addition to the excellent "Blackwell Companions to Philosophy" series." D. Haugen, Choice, January 2002 "The essays are of a uniformly high quality, some even gems of exposition, and of a uniform style, sticking to discussion of issues and views at a common level of detail..." Journal of the History of Philosophy 2003 "This attractive volume is a superb resource for anyone interested in analytic philosophy."Choice
