Featuring essays from leading philosophical scholars, 12 Modern Philosophers explores the works, origins, and influences of twelve of the most important late 20th Century philosophers working in the analytic tradition.

It considers how contemporary philosophy both draws from, and contributes to, the broader intellectual and cultural milieu.Read more
