For courses in 20th-century Philosophy, or as part of courses on Contemporary Philosophy, or courses on Epistemology or Metaphysics that take a historical approach, or courses on recent Continental Philosophy or Anglo-American Philosophy.Designed to be accessible to today's students, this anthology of readings in twentieth-century philosophical classics includes recent European and American philosophers and texts that are presently seen as classics or as emerging classics. It features the best available translations of texts-complete works or complete selections of works-which are both central to each philosopher's thought and are widely accepted as part of the "canon." The selections are readable and accessible, while still being faithful to the original. Introductions to each philosopher, an abundance of drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline keep students focused more
