Description - Philosophical Analysis in the Twentieth Century, Volume 2 by Scott Soames
This is a major, wide-ranging history of analytic philosophy since 1900, told by one of the tradition's leading contemporary figures. Despite its centrality to philosophy in the English-speaking world, the analytic tradition in philosophy has had very few synthetic histories. This will be the benchmark against which all future accounts will be measured. The first volume takes the story from 1900 to mid-century. The second brings the history up to date.
