Future Pasts : The Analytic Tradition in Twentieth Century Philosophy
This collection of previously unpublished essays presents a new approach to the history of analytic philosophy, one which does not assume at the outset a general characterization of the distinguishing elements of the analytic tradition. The distinguished contributors, including luminaries John Rawls and Hilary Putnam, pay close attention to the historical contexts in which analytic philosophers have worked, revealing multiple discontinuities and misunderstandings, as well as a complex interaction between science and philosophical reflection.

Future Pasts is to be highly commended to anyone interested in knowing what our great 'contemporaries' really thought, and to understanding how their thought fails to fit into some of the compartments which we have become accustomed to. * Philosophy *
